Subject: practice cracking passwords

I've been asking this before, but I'll repeat for those who have joined
us on this list just recently (welcome!) -

Whenever you post something on a new topic, please be sure to post it as
an entirely new message - _not_ by hitting "Reply" on someone else's
posting.  Please also make sure to set a descriptive message Subject.

If you see that someone else has not followed this procedure, but you'd
like to comment on their message, please change the Subject (like I did
now), but do not break the existing thread (so "Reply" to the message).

I can interpret your question in a number of different ways, so you
might want to clarify it.

If you are looking for sample password files with hashes to crack, then
you can try the following Google queries:

root "$1$"
99999 7 "-1"
"enable secret 5"

and many others - just be creative.

For those curious, "12eMC4Wi9/C9o" is the first most common password
found on JtR 1.7's password.lst hashed with the traditional crypt(3)
using the password itself as the salt (a fairly common mistake), and the
large numbers are pointer values from uninitialized stack space from
Red Hat Linux 6.x (and similar) systems that used libpwdb.
