Do you need to retreive a password from a Dreamweaver .ste file?

[This page is backfilled content from my old website. I have no idea if this still works. I certainly hope that Adobe has updated Dreamweaver's security, but I don't know for sure. But if descrambling the password from a .ste file is your only hope of getting back into your server, it's worth a try, right?]

Do you need to retreive a password from a Dreamweaver .ste file? In the .ste file there is a field that contains an 'encrypted' password. If you need to retrieve this password, the trick is this...

1) find the password in the .ste file: pw="62767577697779"

2) break the password into pairs of hexadecimal (0-9,A-F) digits: 62 76 75 77 69 77 79

3) subtract from each hex digit based on it's position in the string (if you're unfamiliar with hex, consult your local software developer), starting with 0:
62-0 = 62
76-1 = 75
75-2 = 73
77-3 = 74
69-4 = 65
77-5 = 72
79-6 = 73

4) convert the resulting differences back into ascii:
62 75 73 74 65 72 73
b  u  s  t  e  r  s

And voila... 62767577697779 => 'busters'. Enjoy!
