It just forces the process to update john.pot as well as the corresponding .rec and .log files - which normally would be updated every 10 minutes (unless specified otherwise using the Save = option in john.conf). john --show and john uses john.pot to report which passwords have been cracked. john --status uses the information in the .rec file to report the status. So the kill -s 1 (under Unix/POSIX) is a method to make sure john --status will show information which is up to date and not up to 10 minutes old. Frank
