I believe that if you search the Internet you should be able to find code that will decrypt SQL Server 7.0 passwords. I know for a fact that the encryption algorithm used by SQL Server when the WITH ENCRYPTION option is used on stored procedures and views has been broken, and the code is available on the Internet. I believe that the same is true for the encryption method used for passwords, but I wouldn't absolutely swear to it.
Please reply only to the newsgroups.
When posting, inclusion of SQL (CREATE TABLE ..., INSERT ..., etc.) which
can be cut and pasted into Query Analyzer is appreciated.
