Weakness Breakdown


Definition:

This weakness involves creating non-standard or non-tested algorithms, using weak algorithms or applying cryptographic algorithms incorrectly. Algorithms that were once considered safe are commonly later found to be unsafe, as the algorithms were broken.

Warning code(s):

The crypt functions use a poor one-way hashing algorithm; since they only accept passwords of 8 characters or fewer and only a two-byte salt, they are excessively vulnerable to dictionary attacks given today's faster computing equipment.

File Name:

./src/innoextract-1.7/src/crypto/arc4.cpp

Context:
void arc4::crypt(const char * in, char * out, size_t length) {
