John the Ripper 1.7.9-jumbo-6 Released earlier today. This is a" Community-enhanced " version, which includes many contributions from JtRcommunity members. "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. Besides several crypt(3) password hash types most commonly found on various Unix systems, supported out of the box are Windows LM hashes, plus lots of other hashes and ciphers in the community-enhanced version."
People imagine that sophisticated hacking requires sophisticated computers. The truth is that almost everything a hacker does can be done with a cheap notebook computer, or even a mobile phone. The major exception is password cracking , and related crypto tasks like bitcoin mining and certificate forgery . In these cases, a minor investment in hardware can be warranted. In particular, those who need to crack passwords (pen-testers, sysadmins, hackers) should buy a gaming graphics card in order to speed up cracking. Or, when buying notebooks for pen-testing, they should choose those with graphics processors.
