Those are hashes. They are one way encryption. You can use a tool such as hashcat to break them.

But first, try hash id|entifier to see what kind of hash it is

how-to/password-cracking, it seems in null-byte,there has a series about it

thanks guys. i have tried hashcat and all major password cracking softwares but those hashes are not found or unknown hash type is the response i get. i have the possible encryption keys form the decompiled java class files but dont know how to use them to intead decrypt the passwords
