SysAdmin, avoid Data Leakage! It’s all about decode passwords…

All About Data Integrity in 6 steps:

  1. As every of you know, data integrity is one of Corporate Ethical items. These days we have to pay attention on everything we search and input on Internet that is about our daily customer’s data, day-by-day, etc. Data leakage is very common in behind the scenes.
  2. It’s very common go over Search Engines for stuffs how-to, specially when those are very specific.
  3. XOR Password are used mainly for WebSphere family products, and usually are administrative or Database’s password written into XML in plain text, but XOR decoded.
  4. What is like XOR password? Look at that: {xor}Bjo+N34GMCoSPjs6Fit+
  5. Easily it can be decoded? Use that HTML attached and avoid expose the password to Internet watchers!
  6. Here is the content of JavaScript. If you think it is a good practice, share to every SysAdmin, DBA, Web Admin and technical enthusiasts.
