What the blog is referring to is worksheet protection. It sounds like what you're referring to is workbook encryption. They're different things and use different algorithms.

Worksheet protection is very weak and is why you can brute force a collision for the password used to protect the worksheet. It was weak and remains weak for current versions of Excel.

Workbook encryption is much more secure as the version of Excel increased. Depending on which version was used and which file format was used to encrypt the workbook, you may not be able to crack it.
