Subject: rar2john problem with old DOS rars


I found some ancient backups from the DOS era. The data is stored in a
password protected RAR, probably RAR 2.x of maybe even 1.x. rar2john doesn't
seem to understand this format:

bofh@...t:/tmp$ /opt/JohnTheRipper/run/rar2john OLDMODS.RAR
! OLDMODS.RAR: Not recognising any more headers.
Did not find a valid encrypted candidate in OLDMODS.RAR

JtR is the latest and greatest magnumripper version. Any clues about how
what's going on? Thanks!
