Obfuscation will never work.

Hello again, sweet readers !

OpenRG is an embedded OS for routers.
It's based on Linux and it's inside many ISP
routers out there.

Inside OpenRG configuration file,
passwords appear in a way that can seem
to be crypted, but it's just obfuscated.

For example:

Above you can see a simple deobfuscator.

You can try it with:

Hey Zibri! How about the new ziphone version? Any informatione about it?

DanExtreme said...

so this basically de-encodes the password to access a wireless modem? and what do I need to see the encoded password?

DanExtreme said...

you should put an eye on the motorola droid! I would love it if you were the one who unlocked it! Still have plenty of faith in you man! keep it up!

John said...

Hey Zibri, I have a question: Why did you leave the JB Community and stop creating jbs?

Zibri said...

John.. hmm for the moment.. yes..
I could come back in a near future or on the next product (tablet?)

Another question directed a Zibri... Why don't you make a Custom Firmware for PS3 or PSP... The scene for PS3 hacking/back-up loading hasen't even begun... Everybody's waiting for the new PSP to get hacked..... Hope you reply...

Felipe said...

+1 on the ps3 custom firmware, hate that I have to convert .mkv files to .mpg :(

Zibri said...

Send me a ps3 then... I still have my faithful ps2 .. yah I know.. I'm not a gamer :)

PurpleeEse said...

I'm sure if you post on your blog that you want a PS3 to do some testing/hacking somebody will give you one. After all your Zibri, famous iPhone hacker. :) I hope you take my advice seriously.

Joe said...

i do believe there is a product coming your way to jailbreak.... so keep an eye out...

Zibri said...

Like what?

I won't do that.. I have too many things now.
And I usually don't ask.
As I said I'm not into gaming so much.

PurpleeEse said...

@Zibri & @Joe Are you referring to the Apple Tablet rumour??

Joe said...

No... Not the tablet

Zibri said...

Joe: drop me an email..
