Subject: extracting hashes from openldap for cracking

Hi Folks

Bloody spammers have found out webmail system and have managed to  
guess a few passwords :( Running JtR over this has been on my todo  
list for a long time but never made it to the top :(  Now it is rather  
urgent, I'm getting sick of playing whack a mole!

The IMAP server which all the cracked accounts are on uses openldap  
for authentication.  The conf files says that the passwords are stored  
in crypt hashes and the database is ldbm.

Given time I am sure I can cook up some perl to pull the hashes out  
into something that I can feed to JtR but I'm hoping that someone has  
already done this and can point me to a script.

Thanks, Russell
