I am assuming that you're answering Nick's question on what version of John you're running, and by "V6" you mean version 1.6. If so, I suggest that you quote just the particular question you're responding to above your response the next time to make your messages easier to read. Also, I recommend that you upgrade to John 1.7+ for better performance, as well as to be running a currently supported version.

This file does use some special syntax (and, no, I do not know what the numbers mean for sure, although my guess is that they're numbers of occurrences of the names in some text). Perhaps whoever has generated this pwdlist.txt for you combined multiple wordlists from an FTP archive without much care. My suggestion is that you replace your pwdlist.txt with all.lst from the Openwall wordlists collection or, better yet, from the JtR Pro package (JtR Pro is currently for Linux only, but its wordlist can be re-used on any OS). I did review each wordlist that went into the collection manually, so there should be no occurrences of "encoded words" (that have not been appropriately "decoded") in the Openwall collection. Hope this helps. -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: 5B341F15 fp: B3FB 63F4 D7A3 BCCC 6F6E FC55 A2FC 027C 5B34 1F15 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments Was I helpful?
