It looks like that article describes exactly what happened on this list last
month where one of our subscribers posted their encrypted PW and it was
decrypted by leif@ibm.net

Leif said he could compromise the password database, but never proved it.
Personally I feel that the database is safe, but my main concern would be
hackers sniffing the wire for a security officer logon, then decrypting the
password. Kinda like L0phtcrack for the 400...
