Who knows this Hash?
I am new to this forum and hope that you can give me a helping hand.
I have in one of our new network device, for the user password saved hashes. I thought it is a MD5 hash, but it looks different. In the user manual I cannot find anything. Also when I try MD 5 hash generators it gives me total different hashes out.
Here is the hash:
Does anyone know what kind of hash algorithm was used for that hash?
Thanks in advance

found the solution.
It is MD5 but Unix Version. sometimes I am just so....
For those who like to have a good online Hash generator for a lot of hashes with 1 click. But sorry I am not allowed to post it

Look-up the term "shadow." They're usually held in *NIX systems in /etc/shadow.
John the Ripper is a great program to crack UNIX shadowed passwords. Useful if you forget your password.

Thank you for the informations. Does John uses also the Rainbow Table technique?
I was just curios about the fact that the Zyxell Zywall Firewall Products uses MD5 Unix Hashes and not the nomral MD5 as Cisco.

As far as I know, John uses both dictionary attack and brute force attack. Cain and Able uses rainbow tables.
