I've got a soft that capture the Yahoo session like:
Can anyone know how to decode the passwd hidden under
Thanks and regards
Re: How to decode Yahoo password?
decryped... well, at least not easily! :)
Why? You are sending the result of a hash function applied on your
passowrd. A hash function is a one way function (it can not be
reversed)... It _seems_ yahoo is using MD5 (128 bits) (according to
your posted URL).
More info about this:
BTW: the hashed password is passwd=9c207190bd41430c9157fc5ca8a84d57
(without the &), now you should decode every pair of chars (hex code)
into binary to get the "real" MD5 hash code, so you get the 128 bits...
For example: 9C (Hex) is 156 (dec), 10011100 (bin), these are your
first 8 bits, you can get the rest! :)
Anyway if i'm correct and this is a MD5 hash you won't do anything
useful with this...
Just for fun i will try to crack it for you! Well, to tell the truth i
will try hashing words and compare them with your posted hash...
I will try using some dictionary (306000 words), and will add 2 numbers
(00..99) at the end, and also i will play mixing caps and reversing
tic...tac...tic...tac... (around 30 minutes later)
Nothing!!!! your only hope now is using brute force on it. I don't
recomend this method even if this is the old MD5 alg., with just 128
bits... it will take too much computer cycles!!!! But of course it will
depend on how important it is that "information" :)
