Here is a particularly embarrasing statement and question.
S: While working on a FreeBSD 4.4 dev box, changed the root password, but
now, cant su. the password I used is > 12 chars long, and was made
intentionally cryptic. I know all the chars used in the password (yes I have
it written down).
Q: Where are all the ssh password 'guessing' utilities I see the hackers
using on my system? Located, I could really use one.
Failing this, I will need to drive to TO and reboot the system by hand and
change the passwd. a waste of $50 in gas.
