Without reviewing that code in full context (I don't care about it enough to do that), I've only noticed that the strncmp() is wrong - it should be skipped when there are fewer than strlen(KRBTGT) characters left from &plain[i] till the end of plain. But that might not be _the_ problem. Till, Erik - care to try fixing that function to make it work with -fstack-protector? > Btw. why are the patches distributed apart from john? You've identified one of the reasons - the quality is often inadequate. Other reasons include dependencies on external libraries (in this case it's libdes or OpenSSL) and licensing issues. -- 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 -- To unsubscribe, e-mail john-users-unsubscribe@...ts.openwall.com and reply to the automated confirmation request that will be sent to you.
