The Mysterious World of Hashes

When auditing passwords, we often encounter the need for decoding passwords to hashes of different types: MD5, MySQL, SHA-1, and others. How can we most quickly recover the sought password from a hash (even if it’s a hard one, which can’t be recovered by the exhaustive search with tools like “super@dmin”)? How can we recover the password for a hash of a unique type, which isn’t supported by any known software? These questions are now answered by PasswordsPro.

 
 

PasswordsPro recovers passwords for hashes of the following types: MySQL, MySQL5, DES(Unix), MD4, MD4(HMAC), MD5, MD5(HMAC), MD5(Unix), MD5(APR), SHA-1, SHA-1(HMAC), SHA-256, SHA-384, SHA-512, Domain Cached Credentials, Haval-128, Haval-160, Haval-192, Haval-224, Haval-256, Tiger-128, Tiger-160, Tiger-192, Whirlpool, etc.

The software also supports hashes used in online message board applications, including: md5($pass.$salt), md5($salt.$pass), md5(md5($pass)), md5(md5($pass).$salt), md5($salt.md5($pass)), md5($salt.$pass.$salt), sha1($username.$pass), etc. No other application in the world can do all that in the same amount!

BackBlaze

Another key feature held by PasswordsPro is having all of its hashing modules implemented as individual DLL files; this enables users to quickly add to the program new hashing modules written in any programming language. The application setup file contains a source code example of such module written in Visual C++ .NET 2003, which one could use as a template for creating custom modules. And the application message board has publicly available ready to use MASM and FASM templates.

The software supports several types of attacks – from the preliminary attack, instantly recovering simple passwords like “123456”, “qwerty” or “q1w2e3r4”, through the hybrid dictionary attack, capable of recovering such complex passwords as “P@$$w0rd”, “Mr.Johnson”, “12345123451234512345”, etc.

Thus, the program will be extremely useful to computer security and password audit specialists.

With the license to use PasswordsPro, user obtains the capability to work professionally with an unlimited number of hashes.

Further information on this software you will find in the article “PasswordsPro – The Mysterious World of Hashes”, available at http://www.insidepro.com/doc/005e.shtml. That article is actually an application guide on using the software for auditing passwords in the real life.
