Do you also achieve this for LM hashes or only for NTLM? Hash Suite 1.2 66MB cracking 1 million LM hashes > Perhaps in Hash Suite you keep the binary values only? I keep the binary and a 8 bytes value to identify what hash it is. This can be a 4 bytes value, reducing memory use ~15% but i do not bother. As you mention the principal problem with John is that it keep the ciphertext in memory. saludos, alain
