I'm afraid you are wrong this time, appended colons does not matter at all so his input file is OK. Actually it would also be perfectly OK with just the bare hash and no user field:


Stripping the user field is a very bad idea as Single mode makes good use of it, but if you do not have one there is no need to fake it.

BTW there is a tag you could use in the input file if you know the hash is raw MD5:


This tag is optional but if you have it you don't need to specify --format=raw-md5.
