DONE Successfully written charset file: my.chr (14 characters) I also add this section to john.conf [Incremental:my] File = $JOHN/my.chr MinLen = 8 MaxLen = 8 CharCount = 52 Yet when I now attempt to use this to crack the passwords: $ ./john -i=my passwd Loaded 1 password hash (Traditional DES [64/64 BS MMX]) Warning: only 14 characters available I still get that warning despite adding the Charcount in the john.conf file?!
