I've gotten a list of encrypted passwords...?

I tried to decrypt a few of them using MD5 decrypter, but it didn’t work. What else can I do?

the encrypted password is not in md5 encryption . it is in different type of encryption . encryption name = s***

Notice the length of the password hash… it obviously isn’t md5

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SHA-1
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MD5
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Encryption_Standard
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_Encryption_Standard
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triple_DES
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Base64

These are just a few types of encryption, there isn’t really any standard logic to understanding what type of encryption a certain string is. Learning off by heart to recognize what kind of encryption is used is a useful skill to have.

SHA1, yeah, I know.

Yeah, I did realize that after looking at the length.

Well perhaps not necessarily a “spoiler”, but a (big hint) I guess.

My post was simply to help you (anyone who reads) understand what types of encryption there are. If it was a spoiler it was unintentional :)

Ok then, thanks again.

Ok, so hash algorithms can’t be reversed or decrypted, so how do I find the equivalent value?

the algorithm can be reversed, if you want to manually reverse it you can, but there are plenty of decrypting tools. What do you mean by the equivalent value?

ok it was not a spoiler , but a big hint . :D

By equivalent value I just meant the value of the encryption. Come on man, you know what I meant, in one way or another. I think I’ll just use a tool to decrypt it :)

Technically the algorithm can’t be reversed, but you can still try various inputs and see if the result matches what you’ve got. On the other hand there is a plethora of sites, which have already done that and provide a lookup to their pre-computed results.

damage whats good man ya like he said wen you try to brute force an md5 hash which is a one way cipher you have the resulting md5 hash which is not unique if it is a already listed hash in a database ya know
