It is not clear what version you actually had here. Anyhow, if one of the builds had Jim's patch applied and the other did not, then such a comparison is not very useful. If you wanted to see the effect of Jim's patch, you should have been using the same base version of JtR in both cases (but I think you had done that earlier). > here it is the stats : (same wordlist : 536875 words, same hashlist : > 2 millions, same rules (mine), same computer) OK. > --john 1.7.4-- > guesses: 77 time: 0:00:00:06 2% c/s: 236251M trying: jugum - > juillenay > > --john 22.214.171.124-- > guesses: 247 time: 0:00:00:05 0.00% (ETA: Mon Dec 28 20:57:24 2009) > c/s: 2867880M trying: maizu - mdiek > > > JTR 1.7.4 has found 77 passwords in 6 seconds -> c/s: 236251M > JTR 126.96.36.199 has found 247 passwords in 5 seconds -> c/s: 2867880M This is weird. If you were using the same wordlist and the same ruleset, then there should be no difference in the number of cracked passwords. However, both of your sessions were only running for a few seconds. I would not rely on incomplete sessions like that for a comparison. From the above, we do not know whether both runs would eventually crack the same passwords or not. If you want to compare two versions/builds of JtR, please adjust your wordlist and/or ruleset such that the sessions actually terminate soon enough (e.g., in a few minutes) and compare their final outputs.
