    Who knows this Hash?


    HI

    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:

    $1$RM.bbbuj$CPpUiNEH6eT1Lge4zOto/0

    Does anyone know what kind of hash algorithm was used for that hash?

    Thanks in advance

    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.

    hi rdunne,

    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.
