You can use the "usual" approach of splitting your john.pot file in halves and seeing which half still causes the crash, then split that one and so on. You should be done in around 25 iterations. If you ever determine that neither half causes the crash or both do, then it's not just one "problematic entry". Either way, I'd be interested in your results. > > I'd be of more help if you reproduce > > the problem on a debugging build of JtR (add "-g" to both CFLAGS and > > LDFLAGS, remove "-s" from LDFLAGS) while running under gdb, then type > > "bt", "i r", "disass $pc-20 $pc+20" in gdb (and post the output of these > > commands in here). > > I don't think I understand what it is you want me to do....? > "while running under gdb"?? I suggested that you start a debugging build of John the Ripper under the GNU debugger - gdb - which is a part of Cygwin (or you can do it on non-Windows). Maybe this is too complicated for you. -- 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.
