By default, the application provides public access to the text file which stores the MD5 hashes of the username/password and these can be found at:
These two hashes represent the username (first) and the password (second).
By default these are 9d0aea34e0f22cff881feb82c79ce76a and e20eeabd7d13800e1c30043b269fbc86 respectively.
We need two more hashes to fake the required credentials:
One is the MD5 hash of $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] which is in this case "/rcblog" -> ad624ca84b593d66e3685e83e4a3618e
The other is the the MD5 hash of the public IP of the user, let's say "192.168.1.5" -> 2e9e9f7c017ee2a1645a236d182fb28c
Finally we combine the hashes into one large string and craft it in a "rcb_id" cookie in the following order:
Directory -> IP Address -> Username -> Password
We are then logged in with administrative privileges.
