Subject: A puzzling hash from the past


I recently analyzed the firmware of a certain discontinued router that
I have and managed to extract a cramfs filesystem. There, I found
/etc/shadow with a strange hash:


To my understanding, a DES hash should have 13 characters in base64
digits (including the salt). Any ideas why does it start with a '$'?
It appears that the firmware utilized tinylogin 0.80 and uClibc
0.9.26. I had a look at the source but found no clues.
