Subject: MSSQL Hash Format in JTR

I am using JTR version 1.7.7. with jumbo 6.

Let's say I have the following MSSQL hashes:


I run JTR as:

john -w:wordlist.txt --format=mssql hashes.txt

Now the question is, when I check the candidate passwords that are being tried by JTR against these hashes, they are all in Uppercase. Why is that so?

Are the MSSQL 2000 hashes supposed to be case insensitive?

Another question, which relates to the same topic is.

When I try to crack multiple MSSQL hashes with JTR version 1.7.7 jumbo 1,

I notice that, it tries some weird combination of characters and not the actual wordlist passwords.

Also, it tries to bruteforce only the first hash in the hash list. Remaining hashes are ignored.

Is this is a known bug since I couldn't find it listed anywhere in the mailing list, so I have opened this new topic.
