Attempting to extract the hash from the program Password Safe http://passwordsafe.sourceforge.net/ to see if I can recover my forgotten main password for this program. Was hoping to use the program pwsafe2john to extract it. However, I don't seem to know how to use this program. 1. I tried the following under Ubuntu (running in a VM on Win 7): git clone git://github.com/magnumripper/magnum-jumbo gcc pwsafe2john.c -o pwsafe2john # from src/ folder ./pwsafe2john pwsafe.psafe3 > pwsafedump ../run/john pwsafedump That complained that there was an undefined reference to 'main' So I changed the pwsafe2john name in the pwsafe2john.c file to main Then recompiled with no errors (not sure this was the right 'fix') Then ran ./pwsafe2john pwsafe.psafe3 > pwsafedump That complained "Couldn't find PWS3 magic string. Is this a Password Safe file?" Well it is a Password Safe file, but from a Windows environment, not sure if that matters. Using UltraEdit on the pwsafe.psafe3 file, it shows the first 4 characters as PWS3. So I think the file is the correct one. So I am a bit of a fish out of water on this program. Any suggestions on how to successfully extract the hash from the pwsafe.psafe3 file so I can feed it to JTR to try to crack? (In the best of worlds, the "solution" would be in Windows as my comfort level is higher there, but I can use Linux if that is what is needed). Thanks, John H.
