Subject: segfaults in eigrp, hsrp, KeePass, skey, and SSH-ng

Hi all,

since the github issue tracker doesn't allow file
upload, I attach a fail.tgz with this contents:

$ tar tvzf fail.tgz     
drwxrwxr-x fd/fd             0 2014-10-28 21:06 fail/
-rw-rw-r-- fd/fd          4355 2014-10-27 18:36 fail/
-rw-rw-r-- fd/fd         10034 2014-10-27 18:56 fail/
-rw-rw-r-- fd/fd          2720 2014-10-27 19:01 fail/
-rw-rw-r-- fd/fd          4167 2014-10-28 21:06 fail/
-rw-rw-r-- fd/fd          1444 2014-10-27 18:46 fail/

Each of these files contains a single test hash which causes the
corresponding format to segfault, so valid() needs to be improved.
These formats do have either a or format2john converter,
which most likely create hashes that don't cause segfaults.
Nevertheless, john shouldn't segfault on these input files.
Just call john with the fail/fail_<format>.pw file name as the only
parameter to reproduce the segfault.
