So help me out, forum. I’m early days in the labs, but I feel like I’m missing something, or otherwise have something important to learn. So (hopefully this will make sense to people who’ve gotten past this point):
John the Ripper (with the special sauce):
rockyou, crackstation, a bunch of the big ones from hashes.org
best64, various KoreLogic
600k-ish guesses a second (4-core i7), 7 days.
So I’m left wondering, “Have I just been unlucky and missed one combination that would get the job done, or am I doing this all wrong/missing something important?”
