Subject: RE: Using Cain and Abel Hashes

Alright. For those that are not familiar with Cain and Abel, what it does is you can capture information traveling across the network. When a user logs on to Active Directory, it records the hash. The problem is that it isn't very efficient at cracking hashes (not to mention only for Windows). I've attached a hash as per Alexander's request. The password for this hash is: 2002

The confidential statement is set on the Exchange server and I don't have access.

PS: This email is not confidential (unless you want it to be) :P

I am not familiar with Cain and Abel; I suspect that only a small
fraction of subscribers to this list are.  You might enable more of us
to potentially answer your question by posting a sample of that "hash
gathered from Cain and Abel".  If you post the corresponding plaintext
password (a test one indeed), that would work even better.  Please
consider doing it.  Even if no one ends up answering your question, the
information you'd post (a hash + password combo) could be of some use to
some of those searching the list archives months or years later. ;-)

Then why did you sent it to a public mailing list? ;-)  Seriously, those
confidentiality notices are rather annoying, especially on mailing list
postings.  You may want to remove yours if you have any control over it
(I understand that you might not).
