crypto weakness #91

The use of a broken or risky cryptographic algorithm.


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.
