It does not. However, older versions had something similar (but not exactly that): Mac OS X 10.3 stores LM hashes in addition to ones used natively. Since those hashes are stored, they can be attacked - and they split passwords into 7-character halves (yes, that's 7, not 8). Also, LM hashes are case-insensitive wrt input passwords, which allows for even faster cracking. Mac OS X 10.2 and below uses the traditional crypt(3), which truncates (not splits) passwords at 8 characters. > I'm starting with a small test file where there are 48 characters in the encoding for the target hashes and the "Loaded..." line reads: > > Loaded 2 password hashes with 2 different salts (Salt SHA1 [salt-sha1]) That's fine. There's no low length limit with these hashes, as far as I'm aware. > -----Original Message----- ... Please don't overquote. You must not have quoted the "Original Message" like that.
