    Passwords are stored in encrypted form in the NET$VAL.SYS bindery
    file. It is not possible to decrypt passwords although brute force
    crackers have been written which operate on the bindery.

    The bindery files are stored in the SYS:SYSTEM directory, and
    should not be accessible by any non-Supervisor user. The SECURITY
    utility will detect excessive rights in SYS:SYSTEM.
