But some manual testing revels that it will simply accept ANY password as valid for ANY hash. We should enhance the Test Suite (and possibly the self tests?) so it can detect false positives like these. > > It accepts any pass for any hash only on 9600GT, for rest what have > you tested it it worked as it should? I only see problems on this 9600GT. The heftier cards has no problems that I can see, no false positives (I explicitly verified that). And speed figures are sane. It seems the kernel call on 9600GT returns immediately (some kind of silent crash?) and for some reason the "cracked" array is set. Is there any more error checking that can be made in CUDA than already is the case? magnum
