Atlasis" <atlasis@...ecom.ece.ntua.gr> To: john-users@...ts.openwall.com Subject: cracking MD5 hashes more than 8 characters long with a dictionary Dear all, I tried to use John 1.7.3-1 Pro against a shadow file with MD5 (FreeBSD) hashes. This shadow contains some hashes that are longer than 8-characters. I create a custom wordlist, that contains the actual passwords included in this shadow. When I try to crack this shadow using this custom wordlist, it cracks the passwords whose length is 8 characters or less, but not the ones whose length is more than 8 characters (although I feed the wordlist with the correct passwords) Using exactly the same passwords and wordlist against a Blowfish shadow, John successfully cracks all the passwords, even the ones whose length is more than 8-characters. I tried to change maxlength of john.conf to 16, but this didn't hep me. Any ideas? Thanks in advance Antonios -- To unsubscribe, e-mail john-users-unsubscribe@...ts.openwall.com and reply to the automated confirmation request that will be sent to you.
