    Default Hashed Passwords

    I&#039;m restricting access to a members directory on my site (Win2K server) and I receive passwords in hashed format. They are designed specifically for .htaccess and .htpasswd which obviously is common on Apache/Linux. <BR><BR>Does anyone know how, or where to find info. on decrypting these <BR>(using ASP)?

    One way hash? You don&#039;t. If you have the algoritm, you can brute force &#039;em...Try every possible combination of characters till you find a match, but other than that....<BR><BR>That&#039;s why site that used hashed passwords won&#039;t send you your password if you lose it...They can&#039;t. They just replace it with a new, autogenerated one, and send that to you instead.
