Weakness Breakdown


Warning code(s):

The crypt functions use a poor one-way hashing algorithm; since they only accept passwords of 8 characters or fewer and only a two-byte salt, they are excessively vulnerable to dictionary attacks given today's faster computing equipment.

File Name:

./src/JohnTheRipper-1.8.0-jumbo-1/src/KRB4_std_plug.c

Context:
strncpy((char *)key, crypt(password, "p1") + 2, sizeof(DES_cblock));
