THey knew about the algorithm for some time... BUt they'll also reject any requests. :-) Would it be interesting? Yes Even cracking ZIP-Archives with John would be interesting. But like everything wich would be interesting: It's not implemented yet. :-) Kind regards, Sebastian p.s. If you wanna implement it: Please use a "free" License (e.g. BSD-License) There already some PlugIn wich can't get include (as far as I know) because of the license.
