HI all !!!
Firslty what a great site a resource
OK I've kinda stumbled upon John the ripper which has in turn led me this site resulting in my eyes being opened wide
OK I have the latest version of JTR - firstly I have two .exe files from the DIR to run - one is either john-386 or john-mmx - I've played with both and cant really find any difference had a searcj around and nothing also what is the difference ??
OK then I have quite a nice wordlist - using the argon list.
I firslty put my hash's through this and tend not to get any hits - but I have got some so knw it must work
I think move onto incremental searching searhing all numbers + chars but then thats were I become unstuck - JTR has been working over 25 hrs on one hash but I cant seem to crack it - this seems to be the case for most hashs I use any tips ??
this is the hash I'm trying to have a pop at - anyone able to offer me any tips ???
I been using google hacks to get the hash's aswell - any other ways ??
I have a quad core cpu - when JTR is running it only ever uses 25% - one cpu is there a way to give it more POWER !!!
is there any other programs that I should move onto after this ?? It seems that I'm snowed under a montain of info - If I wanted to go down the cracking path - exploiting web-sites which should be my next steps ??
Dont confuses this with a beg for info just a point in the right direction
