U can retrieve Password of the user….. Do u know – You can get to reveal your password!! This is due a well known bug in the crypto algorithm of UNIX, used to generate /etc/passwd hash. Recent fixes have recommended usage of stronger algorithms like MD5, etc., But due to the large deployment of Unix machines, world-wide, its a very difficult task, requiring huge Logistics support. Check if your machine has the vulnerability. It could be fixed/still open… just type the following command in UNIX or LINUX or Solaris, and you won’t beleive that it will give you password of the user who has logged in !!!
