I know it is 12 characters and MD5. I am trying to use John (win32mmx 1.7 multi-patch) with option -i. I have changed the MaxLen to 12. When I run john -i passwordfile (one user's password) I get a message MaxLen = 12 exceeds the compile time limit of 8. Can john's options be set to try and crack a MD5 password larger then 8 characters? -- To unsubscribe, e-mail john-users-unsubscribe@...ts.openwall.com and reply to the automated confirmation request that will be sent to you.
