After a session of Google Hacking, I came upon a treasure trove known as passwd on a website. I took it upon myself as a cracking challenge. I compiled a wordlist from many different smaller wordlists, and fired up John the Ripper. I've now cracked most of the passwords, but I was wondering, why are they all 8 digit numbers. I attempted to log in with them, but they don't work, and they aren't base64 or hex, so what are they encoded in? I would give you the url of the passwd file, but I want to be the first to hack it Thanks for your help in advance.
