How to decrypt? Password known.

Good luck with that one. There are no publicly known ciphertext only
attacks on AES aside from a brute force search, so without the secret key
you are simply out of luck.

Er, isn't he saying "Password known"?

Yeah, I misread that. In that case, he should just use openssl to decrypt
it. Or any other AES implementation.
