Need Name for a project

14 posts in this topic

Ok, I'm working on a new script and I need a name for it. I've noticed in the past that once I know my Windows logon password well I can type it without consciously thinking about it. Sometimes I do it so fast I hit the wrong series of keys and end up typing my password in the user name field by accented, which causes my password to be saved as a failed login name in the event log. What my new script does is:

1. Look in the even long for failed log on, and notes the name.

2. Finds the next log on that succeeded.

3. Compares the two names.

4. If they do not match, print both to the screen. The failed login name is a possible password and the next successful one is a possible user name for that password.

Any ideas for a good name for the project?

Yeah.. I've noticed myself doing the same thing at times..

you could call it 'field of names', or 'password name' (or, 'password named').

password

with

name

displayed

there must be something better you can write with those letters - pwnd. i can't really think of a clever name, i'm glad i don't have to name the scripts i write :|

The only name I can think of at the moment is mismatched-hashed. Then again you could also try matchmon -- matching monitor? Not sure, but I've definately typed in my password as the user before.
