passwd cracking

Unread postby gcb » Fri Dec 24, 2004 6:15 am

When i got my indy, some 4yrs ago or a little more, it had a root passwd and a regular used with auto logon. It had irix 6.2 and /etc/passwd were not shadowed.

I just copied it to my peecee and runned jack the riper. in some eight hours, every pass on the box was wide open.

Then, i used it for some time, put new passwd on root and changed the default user, etc...

now, i was to revive that machine. and as usual, forgot the root passwd.
since i was only going to wipe the disk to install 6.5, i simply copied the /etc/passwd to the peecee again and let jack having some fun then wiped the disk during instalation, no big deal.

the problem is that i'm f**g curious to recall the root passwd i used in that time... :)

it's still DES but i'm running jack for two whole weeks on seven pcs with no luck! ...go figure my frustation

So, the question: are there any better tools then jack to rip DES passwd?

Thanks

Why not edit the password file from miniroot, deleting the root passwd?

yes, boot like you would want to do a fresh inst.
now escape to shell and just clear the entry.
