The /etc/passwd cracker service
Have you ever been troubled by those DES encrypted passwords in the
/etc/passwd file of your favourite machine ? Worry no more !
What's up ?
Utopia now has a unique, probably the first in the world,
password-hacking mailserver. This server compares the encrypted string
in the /etc/passwd with a 3Mb dictionary, the gecos-field and username.
The dictionary consists of +- 50.000 english words, +-50.000 dutch
words, sf-authors, girlnames and some other stuff that people tend to
use as passwords.
The dictionary check is done by the very fast HADES hacking engine.
I was surprised by the speed of hades ! The gecos and username
scanning is done by the adapted berkeley hacker , this one also appends
0-9 to the end of the guess, and checks upper/lower case and words
How it works:
You need access to some form of uucp/internet mail facilities to use
the server. Fidonet-users can use the fido <-> internet gateway,
a helpfile for this gateway can be found somewhere on utopia, and on
many other systems in cyberspace.
send your /etc/passwd to: [email protected]
The cracker will automagically try to guess the passwords in the
passwd file, and send you back any results it found to the E-mail
adress the file came from.
Ofcourse you yourselfe are entirely responsible for your actions, I
really don't care what you do with any passwords from any hacked
account. I trust you to only use this server for 'educational
purposes' :) Read the boiler-plate on Utopia to have deeper insight
in any legal-issues. Furthermore you should read the disclaimer that
comes with the HADES password hacker.
Thanks go to Zakbar & Remote for making the HADES hacker, to ITSME
for the msdos-berkeley hacker, to Rop for the original idea and to
the cockroaches in my house for entertaining me in those early
