Subject: Using john to crack {md5} LDAP passwords

Hi All,

I'm using john to crack my user's LDAP accounts. I can successfully run
john with entries like this:

userPassword: {crypt}YS7pDyBiCFK/A:1004:1005:Marcos

I just construct a passwd entry like this:

user1:YS7pDyBiCFK/A:1004:1005:User 1:/home/user1:/bin/bash

John recognize it as 'Standard DES'. However, a have users with entries
like this:

userPassword: {md5}06o0nI2TLqcfEaoJa6KfYQ==

John does not recognize this entry as MD5:


I thought that '06o0nI2TLqcfEaoJa6KfYQ==' should be 'FreeBSD's
MD5-based'. (It's not raw-MD5 either). Shouldn't it work? Or LDAP use a
unsupported type o MD5?

Thanks in advance.
