Date: Fri, 12 Mar 2010 01:53:05 +0300 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: announce@...ts.openwall.com Subject: [openwall-announce] file archive; wiki pages; JtR MPI patch Hi, This is to announce three items at once, mostly related to John the Ripper password cracker. 1. We've setup the Openwall file archive - a locally-hosted web-based archive with current and old revisions of Openwall software releases, user contributions, and other related files. Previously, this content was only available via FTP locally and from the mirrors. The file archive is available at: http://download.openwall.net Of specific interest are user contributions and other files related to John the Ripper (269 files as of this writing): http://download.openwall.net/pub/projects/john/contrib/ Many directories contain README.txt files, which are automatically displayed below the file lists. 2. New community wiki pages have been created on topics related to John the Ripper: "How to retrieve and audit password hashes from remote Linux servers" and "Sample password hash encoding strings": http://openwall.info/wiki/john/tutorials/remote-linux http://openwall.info/wiki/john/sample-hashes Further contributions to the sample hashes page are welcome. 3. magnum has contributed a new MPI patch for John the Ripper, which supports parallelization of cracking modes other than "incremental": http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-users/2010/03/09/2 http://download.openwall.net/pub/projects/john/contrib/mpi/2010-magnum/ http://openwall.info/wiki/john/parallelization#Extended-efforts http://www.openwall.com/john/doc/MODES.shtml Older MPI patches were limited to just the "incremental" mode.
