There is another bug belongs to Markov mode.

https://github.com/magnumripper/JohnTheRipper/issues/1357

Did not find bugs on UserClasses, Mask, Regen_Salts_UserClasses.

The fuzzing target are these input sources:

-- input data for 2john tools
-- hashes
-- wordlists
-- rules
-- chr
-- config files (non-rules parts)
-- command line options
-- environment variables

All of the input sources have been fuzzed. But it's impossible that there is
an end to some of the them. Such as, command line options have nearly
infinite combinations. As the 2john tools are simple, I think the fuzzing of
2john tools is done. As other input sources, I think we can continue
fuzzing as we need.

Yes, although I have fuzzed hashes about two weeks, I think it is worth
keeping fuzzing since there are hundreds of hashes. I will fuzz hashes in
the following several weeks.

Thanks,
