Ever had a type 7 Cisco password that you wanted to crack/break? This piece of Javascript was inspired by the WWW page http://www.insecure.org/sploits/cisco.passwords.html. The passwords will be in lines like:

                        enable password 7 095C4F1A0A1218000F
                        ...
                        username user password 7 12090404011C03162E
                        

Take the type 7 password, such as the text above in red, and paste it into the box below and click "Crack Password".

Type 7 Password:

Plain text:

What's the moral of the story?

Don't use the old type 7 passwords anymore. Use the new "secret" keyword only. For example

                        enable secret password
                        ...
                        username user secret password
