Under normal circumstances, the password is encrypted. But for the purpose of this assignment, you can assume the password is already unencrypted.
Review the bruteLogin function program on pp. 58–59 of Ch. 2, “Penetration Testing with Python,” of Violent Python: A Cookbook for Hackers, Forensic Analysts, Penetration Testers and Security Engineers.
Make the following changes/additions to the function:
Modify the bruteLogin function to use both the passwd and shadow files. Assume your passwd and shadow files include two accounts.
Change the bruteLogin to extract the username and full name from the passwd file and the password from the shadow file
Change the output to display the full name when confirming successful FTP Login; e.g., “Myhostname FTP Logon Succeeded: John Smith/ KJDKKkkLLjjwlnttqoiybnm”
