I m new to the list and to John.... My problem is this: I have only the first 5 characters of a md5 hash. Is it possible telling John to check only them during the crack? I mean, is correct the idea that checking only the first 5 is better then all others ? Many keys can be encrypted and having the same first 5 characters so it would be faster then cracking all 16 right? How can I tell John to get the substring of the hash and checking only its 5 chars? .Thanks.
