PPM decrypting password

Hi,

 

Is it possible to decrypt the passwords in PPM?

AFAIK, no way,

Because it is using one-way hashing encryption algorithm, that is the ideal method anyway.

It is using a public key to encrypt which the key is public_key.txt under security directory.

It is always different.

 

But, you can change it as follows.

Get an encripted password with  

 

sh kEncrypt.sh

 

get the encrypted text (excluding leading and trailing #!#  chars),

Update the password field for a particular user in the knta_users  table. 

 

Hope it helps

As I know, PPM does not use one-way hashing for storing user password in db, The password can be decrypted.

Hi,

 

yes: you can create a script to encrypt all possible combination of characters until the encrypted string matches the one in the database.

 

The above statement is a bit sarcastic, but as per my knowledge, brute force is the only way to crack forward-only encryption.

 

cheers
