    Hmm, This question does not sound legitimate... what exactly are you trying to achieve?

    Forum rules: read 1.4. Even if it doesn't happen to be illegal, strictly speaking, we aren't going to help you with questionable things like this. However, if you provide us the code or at least the algorithm that was used for creating the passwords, we might be more likely to help you.

    there are only 3242410555504556901 possebilitys anyway because you can interpolate the second order factors

    the code

    ' asks the user for a key. if the key is incorrect, the user has 3 chances
    ' after the 3rd chance, the program closes.

    dim enter
    enter = inputbox ("What is the key? ",1,"ENTER KEY")
    if enter = "abcde" then



    msgbox "Access Granted!"
    ' connect user to the site
    else
    msgbox ("Denied")
    end if

    (The number of possible out comes has changed sense the password was made to a more simple one, rather than the original 26 characters.)

    i'm not sure of a more efficient way than a bunch of foreach loops...
    Code:
    foreach one (letters) {
         &test(one)
         foreach two (letters) {
              &test(one+two)
              foreach three (letters) {
                   &test(one+two+three)
              }
         }
    }
    there may be an easier way...i just don't know it. i'll keep thinking though

    despite this posts questionability, there are password crackers out there. are we breaking laws by telling someone how to make one? are there legal uses of password crackers? such as velious did: created his own program and wants to try to crack it.

    I've got a pasword revealer that I've used a few times when I've not had the original password handy, so I'd say they have their uses. However, there's a difference between a revealer and a cracker...

    Maybe "cracker" was a bad choice of words, but thanks for the input .
