Today I came across this post that states that it is not possible to get a hard-coded password out of a binary by using the strings command.
But a while back I also remember reading another article saying that it is indeed possible.

I grabbed the code from the linked article, compiled it and executed strings on the binary only to get the same results as the original author.

$ strings pass
/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2
libc.so.6
exit
strncmp
puts
printf
strlen
__libc_start_main
__gmon_start__
GLIBC_2.2.5
