  1. On Ubuntu 12.04 I created several users and passwords, then promptly proceeded to try to crack those passwords with John the ripper. One password is very strong, but the others are in my wordlists. John is still running, but I've got two cracked so far in about 20 minutes. Everything I read talks about whether the salt is known or not.
  2. I’ve encountered the following problems using John the Ripper. These are not problems with the tool itself, but inherent problems with pentesting and password cracking in general. Sometimes I stumble across hashes on a pentest, but don’t recognise the format, don’t know if it’s supported by john, or whether there are multiple.
john --format=raw-md5 --wordlist=/usr/share/dict/words md5.txt
