Wiki signups

Postby counting_pine » Aug 11, 2017 8:57

Signups for the wiki have been disabled for the time being, due to spammers.
If you want a wiki account, post here, giving the md5sum of a temporary password, and when I get a moment I will add you to the database.

It is strongly recommended to provide the md5 of a random, single-use, temporary password, and then to change your password once you log in.

This will allow the wiki to salt your password hash for added security, and it will also prevent the md5 of your long-term password from being compromised.

Hi, if it can help, https://duckduckgo.com/ will compute the MD5 just by typing something like :

Code: Select all

hello md5sum

Code: Select all

5d41402abc4b2a76b9719d911017c592
MD5 hex hash: hello


Of course in one sense you will give up your password to duckduckgo, but it should be quite safe overall, and if we change it once logged, no issue at all.

Here is another way for MD5 computation. Requires Windows Vista or later. Should work with a Linux distro plus Wine but I have not tested it.

Code: Select all

#include once "windows.bi"
#include once "win/bcrypt.bi"
#inclib "bcrypt"
#include once "win/wincrypt.bi"
#inclib "crypt32"

Function MD5( sText As String ) As String
Dim As Byte Ptr phalg, phhash
Dim As Ulong lhashlength, lresult, nlength
Dim As String sbinhash, shex
 
  BCryptOpenAlgorithmProvider Varptr(phalg), wstr("MD5"), 0, 0 ' we want phalg
  BCryptCreateHash phalg, @phhash, null, 0, 0, 0, 0 ' we want phhash
  BCryptHashData( phhash, Strptr( stext), Len( stext ), 0 )
  BCryptGetProperty phalg, bcrypt_hash_length, Cast ( Puchar, @lhashlength ), 4, @lresult, 0
  sbinhash = String$( lhashlength, 0 )
  BCryptFinishHash phhash, Strptr( sbinhash ), lhashlength, 0
  BCryptDestroyHash phhash
  BCryptCloseAlgorithmProvider phalg, 0
   nlength = Len(sbinhash)*2 + 1 ' + 1 to accomodate a null terminator
  shex = Space$( nlength )
  CryptBinaryToStringA Strptr(sbinhash), Len(sbinhash), crypt_string_hexraw + crypt_string_nocrlf, _
  Strptr(shex), @nlength ' at msdn nlength 'out' is len(sbinhash) * 2, so
  Return Left$( shex, nlength )
End Function

Print MD5("hello")

Would I be a favored ?

Ok, I've changed the above.
D.J.Peters, your wiki name is DjPeters - is that ok?

@councting_pine
I was able to log in to the wiki several times (at least on two different dates using my new password) but now the wiki does not accept my password any more. I am 100% sure the password I am using to log in is correct. Since I cannot reset the password myself I have little choice but to ask you, counting_pine, to help me out (again).

Code: Select all

Username: AgSwikki
MD5sum: [...]


Hopefully this is the last time my password needs resetting.

Strange.. Your old password hash was (at a glance) the same one I gave you.
Were you getting the same error you'd get if you tried to log in with an invalid user/password?

I made the wiki use HTTPS redirects a couple days ago, don't know if that's related..
Anyway, I've given you the new hash you've requested. Does it work now?

Thank you! Could you also use HTTPS for the embedded sourceforge image in the footer (at least when HTTPS is used for accessing the site, as Firefox shows a "Parts of this page are not secure" warning otherwise) ?
The current address is: http://sourceforge.net/sflogo.php?group ... 342&type=1

OK, I've changed those links, and the sf.net logo, to use https:// now.

Sorry Joshy, I missed your post.
I've realised the database saves md5s in lower case. I've tried changing your md5 accordingly. Perhaps that will fix it. (Also for PaulSquires.)
