Hi, I'm running an experiment with a wordlist containing 8 billion entries, many of which are duplicates. By the end of the experiment a get the following status line: 1956366g *7942070363p* 0:00:21:18 1530g/s 6214Kp/s 6214Kc/s 25268GC/s lyngemita..LynGemItA In bold is the number of password candidates tried. I expected to see 8000000000 there. After some toy experiments, I realized John might not be counting candidates that were already tried. >From the status lines, I generate a graph with the performance of guessing methods. Not counting duplicates artificially boosts the performance of this particular guessing method, in terms of hits/guesses. So is it possible to easily alter this behavior, either in john.conf or in the source code?! Best regards -- Rafael
