Many times you really do have to specify what the hash is, because it might look like another hash. I think someone could script the detection of the hash type or possible hash type easier and faster than adding the code to jumbo or whatever. If JtR finds multiple types, perhaps it could ask if you want to crack a certain one/type? I think this function might be better outside JtR. Perhaps getting JtR to look at each line and output it's "guess" at what hash type it is could be done. -rich
