Hi all, I just discovered JtR and I'm playing around on my systems with it. I have a couple questions about it. I have a Win7 system that uses NTLM hashes. I also have a FreeBSD system, which uses blowfish for root and md5 for my user account. I was wondering which would be fastest/easiest to crack in incremental mode? Yes, I do know that it probably will take an extremely long time (months?) to crack a long password, but I'm just curious to run it for a couple days and see what happens. I have already tried all three hashes (NTLM, Blowfish, and MD5) using both single and wordlist modes (using the "all" wordlist). I was wondering if it would be worth it to search a larger wordlist out on the internet and try that? What can I do to give john "hints" to speed up the process? For example, I know the passwords I use are all lower-case letters, with a couple numbers appended to the end. Is there a trick to setting the wordlist rules to do this? Or even in incremental mode? Thank you everyone!
