I've been traveling over the holidays and this is the first chance I've had to re-run the tests on the same computer. I applied the john-1.7.4-jumbo-5.diff patch to the base 1.7.4 install, (I used the jumbo patch since I'm updating the install documentation), and reran the tests using the same wordlist/ruleset that I used previously. Here are the results: Ryoki:run cweir$ ./john -wordlist=../../../custom/dictionaries/english-lower -rules -stdout > /dev/null words: 35020483 time: 0:00:00:07 0.32% (ETA: Thu Jan 14 22:59:32 2010) w/s: 5002K current: sanoen66 words: 1510530674 time: 0:00:05:14 13.85% (ETA: Thu Jan 14 23:00:52 2010) w/s: 4810K current: addicks1991 words: 3070769321 time: 0:00:10:45 28.16% (ETA: Thu Jan 14 23:01:15 2010) w/s: 4760K current: snmptest5499 words: 6288846245 time: 0:00:22:29 57.69% (ETA: Thu Jan 14 23:02:03 2010) w/s: 4661K current: Trehaeven1308 words: 10285556295 time: 0:00:38:14 95.28% (ETA: Thu Jan 14 23:03:12 2010) w/s: 4483K current: n0ilivap43 words: 10495949352 time: 0:00:39:31 100.00% (ETA: Thu Jan 14 23:02:37 2010) w/s: 4426K current: 9zzzzzzzthi$ Analysis: It appears that the bug has been fixed. In addition, it ran significantly faster this time, (shaving a full 10 minutes off the running time). While I wasn't running any additional programs during any of the tests, I don't know if this was due to my computer, the changes made in the update, or applying the jumbo patch vs. the base install. Regardless, it's now almost twice as fast as version 126.96.36.199 when comparing guess generation speed. Matt Weir weir@...fsu.edu http://reusablesec.blogspot.com
