John the Ripper Pro password cracker for Mac OS X 1.7.3


John the Ripper Pro password cracker for Mac OS X 1.7.3

John the Ripper is a fast password cracker, currently available for many flavors of Unix, Windows, DOS, BeOS, and OpenVMS. Its primary purpose is to detect weak Unix passwords, although Windows LM hashes and a number of other password hash types are supported as well.

On Mac OS X, the features currently specific to Pro versions are:

* Pre-built and well-tested native package (dmg), which may be installed the usual way - no need to compile
* Universal binary that will run on both Intel and PowerPC Macs, making use of SSE2 and AltiVec acceleration, respectively
A non-AltiVec version is also included for users of older PowerPC-based Macs
* A large multilingual wordlist optimized specifically for use with John the Ripper (4, 106, 923 entries, 43 MB uncompressed) is included in the package, and John the Ripper is pre-configured for its use
* The included documentation is revised to be specific for the given package on Mac OS X rather than generic, making it easier to understand

On Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and newer, you additionally get:

* Native support for 64-bit capable Intel CPUs within the Universal binary, which makes use of 64-bit mode extended SSE2 for even better performance
* Official support for Windows NTLM (MD4-based) and Mac OS X 10.4+ salted SHA-1 hashes, in addition to all hash types supported by the free version (please see below for a full list)
* XPWDUMP tool, which dumps password hashes from Mac OS X systems for subsequent auditing/cracking
* As a bonus, the full source code is also provided
