Stupid password protected spreadsheets!

I have a spreadsheet with an error in one of the formulas.
It's in xls format, I don't have access to the original author, nor do I
have access to windows at this time to run one of the freeware sheet
crackers (I suppose I could try wine).
Libre office opens the sheet just fine, but when I go to unprotect the cell
with the formula error it wants a password.

Are there any good tools for linux for breaking a password on an MS office
spreadsheet so I can update this dang formula?
