Try my decrypting challenge!

Okay, here is a challenge for all you good people. This is a simple decrypting challenge for people using Cain & Abel. The rules are simple. Simply pm me with the string you get from it (It is a audible word, it's in the dictionary). However PM's me with the correct string get's bragging rights for a full 20 years.

Here's the string:
83DFCDAF8ED7E18EADC819212199A05D

Yes, it can be cracked with a standard installation of Cain & Abel. It's just very hard.

This will take days to do. Don't dictionary it, use brute force. If you get something that looks like another encrypted string, your on the right track.

Its not really a challenge then if you just have to sit and wait. And why pm you? It will save everybody else doing it for bragging rights.
Im off, last year of school and all, I had something longer but char limit fucked that up. So yeah, had a good run here. Thanks for the memories. Thanks to the staff and users.

Best regards, your posting whore,

I'll guess it's just doublehashed, using 2 different hashing methods.

Try 5. For doing this you get bragging rights for amazing endurance.

Or it proves you have nothing better to do with your life rather than sit at a computer and crack a hash*5.

This is just a waste of time. The improved security it provides hashing it again decreases every time you hash it again. SHA-1 on MD5 with a salt more than 6 characters is more than enough.
