Password Algorithm finder

By Walkerxp92 ·
What I have is a program that stores passwords in a sql database but it uses some kind of algorithm to encrypt the password. I have a few of the passwords but I need to have the ability to translate the info from the database to show me the password. Does anybody know of a way or have some program that will let me basicly figure out what the equation is to calculate these out.

Basicly this is what I have to work with....

0f359740bd1cda994f8b55330c86d845 = p@ssw0rd

9e722f8710611ad5795ee46b16bb92e2 = honey2

c4ca4238a0b923820dcc509a6f75849b = 1

oh I forgot to mention, no this is not anything illegal... this is for work and it is easier to try and figure this out than ask thousands of users their password......

Have you called the software company that developed the program for their assistance?

It is my guess the passowrds have been encrypted with the help of public and private keys, so you need all keys just to have a chance to decrypt the Passwords. And there probably isn't any chance to do it without the help of that unhelpfull company.

If it a proprietary database and the company who developed it won't help you then you're basically out of luck. You are correct that you need the encryption algorithm but, unfortunately, the only place to get it from is the developer.

Cheers.

My thought is, you don't want to know their passwords. That is what a password is for securing someone's data. If you knew their password and ended up in court for whatever reason. All the defense attorney would have to say is, who knows your password? And your goose would be cooked.
