Date: Wed, 3 Aug 2011 21:38:31 +0400 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: announce@...ts.openwall.com, john-users@...ts.openwall.com Subject: [openwall-announce] John the Ripper 1.7.8-jumbo-5 Hi, I've just released John the Ripper 1.7.8-jumbo-5: http://www.openwall.com/john/ In this community-enhanced release, support for more character encodings via the new "--encoding" option has been added (currently utf-8, iso-8859-1, koi8-r, and cp1251 are supported). This affects wordlist rule processing (what characters are treated as letters, lowercase, uppercase, how lowercase to/from uppercase conversion is performed). This is due to work by JimF and magnum - thanks! Also, support for raw SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512 hashes has been added (only when building with OpenSSL 0.9.8 or later), due to a contribution by groszek. Finally, the Makefile has been revised to work with Solaris native make again. It works with either GNU make or Solaris make now, which means that on Solaris you can use either, but on other platforms you need GNU make specifically. Oh, this also fixed a Mac OS X build issue, where most hash types were missing in -jumbo-4. Now they should be back. In development terms, the following patches have been applied: 0001-linux-x86-64-32-sse2i-added-to-Makefile.patch 0002-test-and-test_full-make-targets.patch 0003-unified-get_key-for-mssql-old.patch 0004-many-changes-fixes-improvements-2.patch.gz 0005-Fix-typo-kio8-r-koi8-r.patch 0006-Unified-get_key-for-NT-and-mscash-non-thread-safe-ut.patch 0007-Fix-for-0006-for-any-builds.patch 0008-Unified-gmake-solaris-make.patch 0009-Refuse-to-run-Unicode-formats-with-other-than-ansi-u.patch 0010-NT_fmt-now-uses-the-optimised-x86-64-crypt-unless-in.patch 0011-koi8r-cp1251-unicode-enhance-2.patch.gz 0012-Re-enable-support-for-full-UTF-16-not-just-UCS-2-not.patch 0013-cmpt_cp.pl.patch 0014-rawSHA224-256-384-512-formats-added.patch and I made some additional changes of my own (documented on john-dev). Meanwhile, team john-users for the upcoming password cracking contest keeps growing. If you'd like to join the team, please e-mail me off-list. You do _not_ have to attend DEFCON to participate - in fact, most people will be participating remotely (but we do have a few representatives at DEFCON, so our participation is official). The contest will last 48 hours from 11:59pm Thursday August 4th to 11:59:59pm on Saturday August 6th, Pacific time (PDT, UTC-7). http://www.openwall.com/lists/announce/2011/08/02/1 http://contest.korelogic.com Last year's contest site: http://contest-2010.korelogic.com Team john-users writeup from last year (lengthy): http://contest-2010.korelogic.com/team_john-users.html This is going to be fun. We'll be using cutting-edge John the Ripper code (beyond 1.7.8-jumbo-5), as well as other tools and data. Alexander
