As you're aware, JtR does not support raw MD5 hashes officially. The contributed patch is obviously very far from being optimal. So what you were benchmarking was not JtR, but rather the known-unoptimal contributed patch. However, you might obtain better results with JtR than with PasswordPro in practice - even when cracking raw MD5 hashes - due to JtR's smarter order in which candidate passwords are tried. This should be best seen if you run both programs against large numbers of hashes. > > - number of loaded hashes and different salts (if applicable); > > 1 (passwordpro used as demo (limited to 1 hash) With just 1 raw MD5 hash, you may also try MDCrack for even better performance - http://c3rb3r.openwall.net/mdcrack/ > Passwordpro has a BIG advantage, a Graphic Interface ! Yes, and it also has a big disadvantage - the lack of a command-line interface - correct? ;-) -- 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.
