I must make a real account for my self too and use it, insted of throw away accounts or as a guest. :) While reading the reddit threads you submitted I got a cool idea for a plugin(or default functionality) to Johnny that actually would make sense to be GUI only: -- [–]Gontoran 1 point 15 hours ago It'd be nice if it didnt need manual configuration for brute-forcing non-standard encryption containers like what Norton Ghost uses for backups. I had to script autohotkey for entering all the possible permutations I could've used into the text box prompt. permalink [–]solardiz [S] 2 points 13 hours ago Yeah, there's this feature request. Unfortunately, the feature would be very specific to each target platform and to each UI type. Arguably, there should be per-platform tools that will work in conjunction with JtR (reading candidate passwords produced by "john --stdout" from a pipe). --- This could be implemented from the GUI and to use john --stdout. This is actually a secondary best use case for --stdout along with creating dictionaries. I perfectly relate to Gontoran's usage case, where I used AutoIt once, to crack a password to a non-standard format that was accepting GUI only input(black box approach), in a virtual machine. Took weeks to succeed, but I did eventually. Heh. PS: Don't forget about the irc announcements on the homepage, twitter and what else you think necessary.  http://www.autoitscript.com/site/autoit/ Cheers, Shinnok -- Shinnok <http://shinnok.com>
