It is easy to guess your CVS passwords
By lukas on Jul 03, 2006
I have to remember lot of passwords to different cvs reporitories. It happens to me that I forgot it sometimes. When it happend to Peter Pis he created a module to NetBeans that guess the password from your cvspass file. He provided the module to me to share it. You can install the module to NetBeans 6.0. It will add a small icon to toolbar. When you click on the icon a dialog appers.
Look at the screenshot of the "Guessing" dialog.
Before I saw this project I hadn't known that it is so easy to guess your cvs password. Peter told me that it is encrypted by simple transition of chars. Hey man, my sister studing sociology could guess the password...
This is Friday project from Peter Pis. He will welcome any comments to this module. You can be 100% sure that the guessed password will not be mailed anywhere but only displayed to you...
Are you interested in the source code?
