Winzip and Due Diligence

Folks,

   I was poking around on Google and noticed there are some tools for cracking WinZip passwords.  Does anyone know 
whether or not these tools also work on AES-256 encryption.  My question is academic from a due diligence standpoint.  
Technically WinZip is FIPS compliant, but if it can be cracked easily, is this something we should really be 
recommending?

Thanks,

Matt
