Subject: Fw: Noob question: how to feed 10 alphanum char min&max incremental to aircrack when "MaxLen = 10 exceeds the compile-time limit of 8"

Thanks for the reply.

It does need to be 10 alnum as the passphrase won't just be digits (and I'd be 
using Mac OSX). So its not possible to just do 10-10 alphanum chars on JtR as 
far as anyone knows? Given that I don't want 9, 8, 7 or less alnum chars nor 11+ 
alnum chars *just 10*, seems quite a reasonable, not too overly time-consuming 
crack to want to feed through from John, I'd be surprised if its not possible.

I take what you're saying in terms of generating a custom .chr file and have 
re-read http://www.openwall.com/john/doc/EXAMPLES.shtml but isn't that method 
merely a way of filtering, i.e. it won't actually make John do a min 10 / max 
10, or am I just not understanding it right?

Specifically... You have to create your own CHR files and recompile.
I have not had success with compiling anything other than digits over 8,
you can DL my digit only build (up to 16 digits) here:
hxxp://xinn.org/jtr__digits/john-digits-16.7z (windows only)
If you don't have 7zip you can find it easily. This build will only
crack digit only
hahses with lengths from 1-16 digit characters long. The build is
against JtR 1.7.6
jumbo rev 5. I'm not sure how to run it against a pcap, but if it's
supported by JtR
or the jumbo patch it should work. I should try again to build an
AlphaNum JtR but
I haven't had the time. You do have to modify the john.conf parameters
to suite your
needs:
  # Incremental modes
  [Incremental:Digits16]
  File = $JOHN/digits16.chr
  MinLen = 1
  MaxLen = 16
  CharCount = 10

Command line:
john-digits-16.exe pass.pwd -i=digits16 -format=nt
I hope that helps some...
