Re: Crack for MD5 Passwords?- correction



John the Ripper does not care what crypt is used AFIK.

It tries to authenticate using dictionary and brute force attack
methods when it is successfull it prints the match.

Does anyone know where I can find a copy of Crack that runs on RH

Crack doesn't seem to be well maintained these days.  You might try a
program called "john the ripper", which handles md5 hashes and will
build successfully with minimal effort.

I use John the Ripper and I don't remember a claim that it will do
Md5 passwds. Can someone confirm this?
