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?) as shown below it loaded 838 and 3229 hashes of which 27 passwords were cracked! I dont believe it is entirely because they are strong passwords, if thats the case. its from about 12 different boxses with I dont believe any addtional security in place.. there has GOT to be more then 1 weak password out of a total of 838 hashes... and more then 26 out of 3229 hashes.. so Im kinda clueless as to why its not cracking properly.. I think Im gonna try reinstall john with the newest version but I dont see that changing much. Im not sure what else information I can provide to see what excatly is going on.. =/ > 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 first file and that you're using an outdated version of JtR - but this 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.
