This search is a cleanup of a previous entry by J0hnny. It uses “parent directory” to avoid results other than directory listings.WS_FTP.ini is a configuration file for a popular win32 FTP client that stores usernames and weakly encoded passwords. There is another way to find this file, that was added by Xewan:filetype:ini ws_ftp pwdIn our experience it’s good to try both methods, as the results will differ quite a bit.

2004-12-19 00:05:13 (mrc0de): this is really cool but how the hell am i sposed to get the password lol. I suppose i could install ws_ftp…
2005-03-01 05:25:21 (peleos): Nice, but the better way to find passwd is type this string:
filetype:ini ws_ftp pwd
2005-04-24 09:44:35 (nokia8210): Guys, i have a problem!
The logins in the file are open but the passwords as you said are encoded.
What utility or program should i use to encode them ?
Thanks for help
2005-06-20 05:51:44 (Dempsey): Not sure if it works but I found this WS_FTP Password decoder
2005-07-01 12:07:08 (Anonymous): there is no need for a WS_FTP password decoder. They don’t work well with all the passwords.
You can use ws_ftp itself to decode the password.
Take the ws_ftp file you found.
if you find a PWD=, this means that this is a valid password.
Now change the UID corresponding to this PWD to anonymous, and load the file to WS_FTP. You’ll have the password in clear text
2005-08-31 08:21:47 (Anonymous): I still can not decode the password.Please help me
2005-10-01 05:15:44 (sasho): Its a bit late to say this but anyway ill comment,nice stuff, and u decreypt the passwords use this link :

There is another one.
meh, I just like knowing passwords, never use them for bad or good, infact I don’t use them at all ;).
2006-10-27 07:03:08 (kayceeclue): I have Learned somethign new today but i will like to know how i can get in to the ftp accounts
2006-11-25 23:04:06 (Brandon252): I’m able to decode the password and find the username, but everytime I enter both of them, it says incorrect user/pass or login incorrect. I’ve tried it with over 100 hosts and about 70 or 80 different sources. Apparently I’m doing something wrong or the accounts are no longer active?
