You can download it there: http://www.banquise.net/misc/bob-the-butcher.html The name is a reference to john, because i ripped the format files and ciphers code. For now it quite sucks. It's buggy, and lacks the following features: * smart password generation algorithm. It just brutes forces all passwords from a to z. Currently a single computer running john is more likely to crack passwords than 10 computers running bob. * salts based mutualisation. The goal of this project is to provide a single platform to crack multiple passwords / hash files at the same time. A good optimization would be to aggregate all of them based on cipher types and salts. I hope this post is not (totally) off topic, and that some brave testers will iron it out. It only works on x86 mmx (linux / cygwin) for now and requires libevent. Moreover, if somebody understands why the ripped DES code doesn't work for x86 without mmx, that would be great. Final warning : this is ALPHA, I wrote it, and there is a network daemon. Only use it on a trusted network.
