You're wrong about that. "MaxLen = 8" is enough since these hashes truncate passwords at 8 characters. Of the two hashes above, the first one gets cracked instantly and the other takes under 15 minutes to crack on a modern system with John's default settings (no command line options). You similarly did not need to increase MinLen or to restrict John to alphanumeric characters. -- 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.
