Re: Crack for MD5 Passwords?- correction



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Thanks to all for the pointer to "John". It installed with very little
trouble. Probably the trickiest part was figuring out that it was
using its own (tiny) word list, rather than the big list that comes in
the distro, and where to change it in the config file.

Anyway, I've got one of my fastest machines at work using its spare
cycles to test our group's passwords.

I temporarily created a password of "apple" on an account that
ordinarily does not allow logins, and it found that within a couple of
minutes. So, I guess it's working! Fortunately, after about 36 hours,
it has not yet found one of the "real" passwords. Should be
interesting.

Thanks again! Ron.
