Subject: Bug in pfx parser?


I try to crack pfx files using the unstable-jumbo version of John. Pfx2john
perfectly converts the files' data to a John compatible list of hashes.
However John cannot load / crack them:

 Unable to create PKCS12 object from bio
 : Success

I guess it's got something to do with the buffer size for the hashes in John
since the problem can be isolated to the hash of a extremely large pfx: the
50k pfx file results in a 99.354 bytes hash. The pfx can be imported in e.g.
Windows without any problems. Can you please look into this? Thanks in
