That was interesting. You can adjust your cracking attempts,
assuming all salts in the passwd file are built using
the same broken algorithm.

But in most cases the passwords will be "cisco" or comething similar.

I found another interesing search term:

allinurl:  "ccbill.log"

Use wget, then grep for "^ADD", and restrict your cracking attempts
to the majority of salts which matching "^[1-9][0-9]"

You easily find more than 60000 different username/hash
combinations, and due to the small number of different salts
(and due to the weak passwords), you can crack more than 30000
passwords in 24 hours;)
