I have an user (e.g something like this user_1:ThnJx./KPgulI) so am i rigth if i suppose that crypt/DES is used ('cause the string is 13 char long/with Th is my Salt). When i check the john.pot it gives me a result for my usrer_1 (e.g my_passw). But my real password for user_1 is not my_passw but my_passwd. So how can you use john for password longer as 8 char (using crypt/DES). I have another question... I have another Linux box (Suse9.2) The /etc/shadow is encrypted using BlowFish. How can I recognize if the Password is encrypted using BlowFish or DES. thx in advance __________________________________ Yahoo! Mail Stay connected, organized, and protected.
