Not necessarily. Those systems might have mostly strong passwords. It is impossible to tell from just the information you have provided. (How many hashes did JtR load for that 15-hour cracking session?) > lynx@box:~/****$ john --show smallshadow > halu:111111:12668:0:99999:7:::: > 1 password cracked, 838 left > > lynx@box:~/*****/big$ john --show bigshadow > vmspam:none:98006:98000::::Incoming:/home/sites/site98/users/vmspam:/bin/ftponly:www.******.com > etc..... > 26 passwords cracked, 3229 left This looks good (except that you should have used "unshadow" on the first file and that you're using an outdated version of JtR - but this shouldn't have affected the number of cracked passwords that much). If you really let JtR run against all of those hashes for 15 hours (this is not seen from your posting), giving it the proper "--format=..." option if necessary, then most of those passwords are likely pretty strong. If so, perhaps the systems have password policy enforcement in place. Another possibility is that the systems you got these files from had some local customizations, making some of the uncracked hashes incompatible with JtR, but this is unlikely. -- 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.
