Subject: [openwall-announce] JtR 1.7.6-jumbo-11


John the Ripper jumbo patch revision 1.7.6-jumbo-11 is out:

Additionally, we're now providing full source code tarballs of
"community-enhanced" versions of John the Ripper (essentially, these
have the jumbo patch pre-applied).  The corresponding links are located
on the "top part" of John the Ripper homepage, along with links to
custom builds:

Hopefully, this will enable more people to use code contributed by the
community, and it will reduce confusion.

1.7.6-jumbo-11 corrects an x86-64-specific NTLM bug, improves self-tests
(which uncovered another bug, not yet fixed), adds support for cracking
MSCash2 (Domain Cached Credentials of modern Windows systems) with
optional OpenMP parallelization, and adds similar OpenMP parallelization
for the original MSCash.  I'd like to thank bartavelle and S3nf for
their contributions to this update.  A lot more detail on this
(including on the bug that this update exposes) is available in my
announcement posted to john-users:

Additionally, Simon John has built unofficial RPM packages of JtR for
x86-64 Fedora.  These are of 1.7.6-jumbo-11 with OpenMP parallelization
enabled, as well as of the older 1.7.6-omp-des-7, which provides OpenMP
parallelization for DES-based hashes (this is not part of the jumbo
patch).  More detail on this and the download links may be found here:
