I." <rawsmooth@...dband.net> To: john-users@...ts.openwall.com Subject: Feedback on the generic crypt(3) patch FWIW, I've had good "non-intended" use of the generic crypt(3) patch as it also enables cracking passwords longer than 15 characters. That length is not that hard to attack when you know a pattern, but plain john let me down. This patch made my day, once I realized it should work. It performs at 25% of the speed of the optimized version but it's still 110% better than nothing :) So my 2 cents: please incorporate "crypt" in the 'official' or at least the 'jumbo patch' versions (even if "incomplete"), and I don't think you should ever remove it even if/when you end up supporting this new password format. It may happen again...
