Not that I know of. It seems like that would be woefully undersecured if it just sent it with the email for no real reason.

No idea. I stopped learning how to hack way back when I was in high school. Last time I checked windows had problems with hashing their passwords. You used to be able to load a Linux boot disk and be able to not only bypass the windows password at the beginning, but read all the password files.

What was the goal here?


Obviously as an administrator I have to ask.

When or why would an email contain a hashed pw?

^ That. I can see encryption of some sort, but why would it ever contain the password?

It feels like it would be easier if you just installed a key logger on a computer or just some simple phishing scam. People are generally pretty dumb.

The best way is to make a real looking and sounding website.
