Re: IpSwitch IMail Server <= ver 8.1 User Password Decryption

IpSwitch IMail Server version up to 8.1 uses weak encryption algorithm to
encrypt its user passwords. Have a look at attached proof of concept tool, which will decrypt user password from local machine instantly.
Unfortunately being able to decrypt passwords is absolutely required in
order to support APOP, or SMTP CRAM-MD5 authentication.
With that in mind, this isn't so much a bug, but rather a design flaw
necessitated to support the protocols involved.
