Subject: jumbo patch for 1.7.2 revision 12


The jumbo patch for John the Ripper 1.7.2 is now up to revision 12.
(I must admit that revisions 10 and 11 were non-public until today.)
Erik Winkler and I have worked on merging the patches, fixing bugs,
testing, etc.  Since revision 9, support has been added for:

- HMAC-MD5 (by bartavelle);
- LMv2 challenge/response (by JoMo-Kun);
- half-of-LM-response (by Dhirendra Singh Kholia);
- EPiServer SID hashes (by Johannes Gumbel);
- md5(md5($password) . $salt) as commonly used in PHP applications (by
Albert Veli).

This revision also includes a much faster implementation of old MySQL
hashes (by Balazs Bucsay and Peter Kasza).

As usual, the jumbo patch is found in the "contributed resources" list
on the John the Ripper homepage:

I have also sent out the following announcement of the new jumbo patch,
along with other related Openwall news items (phpass adoption by popular
web applications, and a new release of pam_passwdqc):
