I use passwordmaker.org to generate passwords. I forgot how to generate my root password! I can't ssh to my device or do anything as a root!
I have another user which has ssh access, but it's not a root account so what I can do is very limited.
However this may not be something inportant, I was able to find the hashed version of the root's password (standard shadow password, which begins with $1$$, notice that it uses no salt!) by cating the /etc/passwd file.
My root's password is the same as the web-interface admin user, so I was able to found the normal md5 hashed password from the .php files.
Now, is there anyway to use these info to recover my password? I'm sure it can't be longer than 16 chars, but it was totally generated and random!
If there is no way to recover id, can I mount the drive using a sata-to-usb and then change the password inside /etc/passwd manually?
