Greb For passwords by entroy

Password policies enforce users to create passwords with high entropies. Entropy is a measure of randomness πŸ˜Άβ€πŸŒ«οΈ. A high entropy password is a password with the following charchteristics: - No repeating sequences of characters - Special characters - Upper case - Lowercase

for i in $(grep -oP "('.*?')" -R --no-filename .); do x=$(echo -n $i | ent | grep Entropy | awk '{print $3}'); echo "$x $i"; done | sort -n


Using timestamp to identify custom files in directories managed by package manager


  • Check timestamp of files in directories managed by package manager to identify files modified by users.
    ls -la --time-style=full
  • Lots of packages don't recored the milisecond or last part of time stamp. If u interact with it that part isn't zereod out.
  • Check for [[Linux/Miscellaneous#Linux Directories]] modified by user whom are supposed to be managed by package manager


paths=$(echo $PATH | sed 's/:/ /g')
for i in $paths; do ls -la --time-style=full $i | grep -v '\-\>\|00000' 2>/dev/null ; done

Check out Config files in their [[Linux/Miscellaneous#Config Files Default Locations| Default Locations]]


  • Check ls -la / to see if there is any docker.env file
  • Check out the running app config files
  • Use [[Linux/Priv Esc/Tools#Docker]]
