Hi All,

I am using Mandriva Linux. Whenever there is a need to change in password, we will be doing the command " passwd user " to change the password for the user.
Whenever we make a change in password, the /etc/shadow file will also be updated. Is there any possibilties, with the help of the /etc/shadow, can we be alble to know the password or decrypt the password of any user? If so, help me in this.



Changes are always possible.......

As long as you have a key and the encryption algorithm, you can retrieve the password.
