Subject: [openwall-announce] Python port of phpass; JtR 1.7.6-jumbo-9

Hi,

This is to announce several things at once.  These were announced on the
Openwall news page and via Twitter before, but were not sent in here yet.

1. A new and finally complete Python port of phpass (our password
hashing framework for PHP apps) has been added to the phpass contributed
resources list:

This one was contributed by exavolt (thanks!)

2. New revision 1.7.6-jumbo-9 of John the Ripper jumbo patch adds
support for cracking generic salted SHA-1, raw MD4, and generic salted
MD4 hashes:

It also integrates three user-contributed patches, as documented in the
john-users posting referenced above.

3. New unofficial builds of John the Ripper with the jumbo patch for
Win32, Linux, and Solaris have been contributed by Robert B. Harris:

There's also a slightly older build for Mac OS X (not announced in here
before).  This one was contributed by Erik Winkler:

This is john-1.7.6-jumbo-7-macosx-universal-3.zip, which is based on
1.7.6-jumbo-7 and some extra patches:

4. We're continuing to make updates to Openwall GNU/*/Linux (Owl):

I intend to announce this in more detail once we have a new ISO snapshot.
