Looking just below, the SPAMmer who made use of this, used the same username and password. I then tried the base64 password for their 'webmaster00' password and that [d2VibWFzdGVyMDA=] works as well. I then tried truncating their password character by character. What I found was that only when I brought the password to 'webmast' (webmaste still worked), did it stop authenticating properly.
What version of vpopmail?
Are you using MD5 passwords (go to your vpopmail source directory and `grep MD5 config.h`)? If not, I think crypt() only uses the first 8 characters of the password. I'm not sure what the limit is if you're using MD5.
