McAfee Virus Scan Enterprise Password Hashes Dump



This module extracts the password hash from McAfee Virus Scan Enterprise (VSE) used to lock down the user interface. Hashcat supports cracking this type of hash using hash type sha1($salt.unicode($pass)) (-m 140) and a hex salt (--hex-salt) of 01000f000d003300 (unicode "\x01\x0f\x0d\x33"). A dynamic format is available for John the Ripper at the referenced URL.
