UGFzc3dvcmQ6

What does UGFzc3dvcmQ6 mean?, it’s the Base 64 encoded version of the work Password: and the most ridiculous security feature that
I’ve ever seen in my life.

But where is this used?, on a student project?, nope, it forms the bases of SMTP email authentication.

  AUTH    {blank}    334 UGFzc3dvcmQ6    18    45    noreply@a.com

 AUTH    c3R1cGlk    235 Authenticated    19    18    noreply@a.com

and the password is base 64 encoded too.

Terrible.
