Awesome idea Marek,
Looks like a good solution to me, I'll keep this in mind for myself even though not asking the orginal post!

I think, there is another workaround. You can reverse order of
characters in lines, cut fields from 7th to the end, then reverse lines
one more time.
$ echo -e
-d: -f7-|rev

The you'll be able to extract passwords by performing a 'cut -d: -f2-'.

$ echo -e
-d: -f7-|rev|cut -d: -f2-

Every colon in a password should prevail this operation.
