Hackers have cracked the 6 letters small passwords along with 16 letters password very easily.
How do they did it !
This may be the first time that scientific method of hacking has been published over the website. post of the arstechnica sites.
Hackers have described all the process for cracking the hash password there. For hacking this passwords hackers have made a list of online hash cracking database.
As by the expert, for hashing they took the users plain text password and after passing through a one way mathematical function a series of unique letters has been generated for that plain text password. This series of unique letters are know as hash. There are many kinds of hash. some of the common types are MD5, salt hash, SHA1, MD5 salt..and so on. Here you can get some of the type of hashes. And there are many site where we can crack the hash to a plain text.
Some of the Passwords!
Some of the password that had been cracked by the hackers and which are quite enough called as strong passwords. But now we cant call them as strong as they are.
Some passwords are
