Subject: Re: bleeding-jumbo: john fails to show status on key


If you need to run john as sudo (hmmm, scary), and you need keystroke captures to work within john, then simply do 'sudo sh' (or bash, zsh, etc) and you get a root shell.  You can then do what you want to do.  KEEP IN MIND, you are root in everything you are doing now, so be very careful.  When done, exit the sudo shell back to your normal user shell.   It is also best to change your prompts, etc so that you get continually reminded that you can do extreme damage.

sudo sh   is pretty close to su -    They are not the same, but the end result is very close.
