as earlier said ..the password file has two fields...
Username:Password
the password is in DES (hashed)Encryption format..

1) If you intentionally acquired this file without the permission of the server's owner, you have violated federal law. 2) If you accidentally acquired this file and then attempt to crack the password, you have violated federal law.

If you truly came upon this file accidentally and you want to warn the owners about their security, simply give them a copy of the file you captured and then delete it.

I work for a state law-enforcement agency. If you wish assistance in contacting the server owners, please contact me off-list.
