Summary: Detects Weak Passwords
John the Ripper is a fast password cracker (password security auditing
tool). Its primary purpose is to detect weak Unix passwords, but a
number of other hash types are supported as well.






* Fri Jan 10 2014
  - Fix build on ppc64le
  - added patches:
    * ppc64le.patch
* Mon Oct 28 2013
  - Use the generic target for m68k
* Wed Oct 09 2013
  - update to 1.8.0:
    + Revised the incremental mode to let the current character counts
      grow for each character position independently, with the aim to
      improve efficiency in terms of successful guesses per candidate
      passwords tested.
    + Revised the pre-defined incremental modes, as well as external
      mode filters that are used to generate .chr files.
    + Added makechr, a script to (re-)generate .chr files.
    + Enhanced the status reporting to include four distinct speed
      metrics (g/s, p/s, c/s, and C/s).
    + Added the "--fork=N" and "--node=MIN[-MAX]/TOTAL" options for
      trivial parallel and distributed processing.
    + In the external mode compiler, treat character literals as unsigned.
    + Renamed many of the formats.
    + Updated the documentation.
    + Relaxed the license for many source files to cut-down BSD.
    + Relaxed the license for John the Ripper as a whole from GPLv2
      (exact version) to GPLv2 or newer with optional OpenSSL and
      unRAR exceptions.
    + Assorted other changes have been made.
  - add simple man pages for relbench and mailer scripts
  - disable jumbo patch for now until a version for 1.8.0 is out
* Sun Mar 17 2013
  - Use the generic target for aarch64
* Sat Oct 20 2012
  - updated jumbo patch to 1.7.9-jumbo-7
* Fri Jul 13 2012
  - update to 1.7.9:
    + Added optional parallelization of the MD5-based crypt(3) code with OpenMP.
    + Added optional parallelization of the bitslice DES code with OpenMP.
    + Replaced the bitslice DES key setup algorithm with a faster one, which
      significantly improves performance at LM hashes, as well as at DES-based
      crypt(3) hashes when there's just one salt (or very few salts).
    + Optimized the DES S-box x86-64 (16-register SSE2) assembly code.
    + Added support for 10-character DES-based tripcodes (not optimized yet).
    + Added support for the "$2y$" prefix of bcrypt hashes.
    + Added two more hash table sizes (16M and 128M entries) for faster processing
      of very large numbers of hashes per salt (over 1M).
    + Added two pre-defined external mode variables: "abort" and "status", which
      let an external mode request the current cracking session to be aborted or the
      status line to be displayed, respectively.
    + Made some minor optimizations to external mode function calls and virtual
      machine implementation.
    + The "--make-charset" option now uses floating-point rather than 64-bit
      integer operations, which allows for larger CHARSET_* settings in params.h.
    + Added runtime detection of Intel AVX and AMD XOP instruction set extensions,
      with optional fallback to an alternate program binary.
    + Added relbench, a Perl script to compare two "john --test" benchmark runs,
      such as for different machines, "make" targets, C compilers, optimization
      options, or/and versions of John the Ripper.
    + Additional public lists of "top N passwords" have been merged into the
      bundled common passwords list, and some insufficiently common passwords were
      removed from the list.
    + Many minor enhancements and a few bug fixes were made.
  - updated jumbo patch to 1.7.9-jumbo-6
  - specfile cleanup (using spec-cleaner)
* Fri Sep 30 2011
  - Added a fix for the arm architecture, TARGET generic
* Fri Jul 08 2011
  - update to 1.7.8:
    + many changes, please see /usr/share/doc/packages/john/CHANGES

      generated by Roman Rusakov specifically for John the Ripper
    + Added Intel AVX and AMD XOP instruction sets support for bitslice DES
    + Apache "$apr1$" MD5-based password hashes are now supported.
    + the loader now includes logic to warn the user of ambiguous
      hash encodings
    + "DateTime", "Repeats", "Subsets", "AtLeast1-Simple",
      "AtLeast1-Generic", and "Policy" external mode samples have been
      added to the default john.conf
    + A few minor bug fixes and enhancements were made
    + Corrected a logic error introduced in JtR in
      "single crack" mode

* Tue Mar 15 2011
  - go from jumbo patch 7 to 12
  - needs -lm to link, via LDFLAGS from make command in spec
* Thu Sep 09 2010
  - update to 1.7.6:
    + Generic crypt(3) support (enabled with "--format=crypt") has been
      added for auditing password hash types supported by the system but
      not yet supported by John's own optimized cryptographic routines
      (such as "SHA-crypt" and SunMD5).
    + Optional parallelization of the above has been implemented by
      means of OpenMP along with glibc's crypt_r(3)
    + Optional parallelization of John's own optimized code for the
      OpenBSD-style Blowfish-based crypt(3) (bcrypt) hashes with OpenMP
      has been added
    + A more suitable version of 32-bit x86 assembly code for Blowfish
      is now chosen on Core i7 and similar CPUs (in 32 bit mode)
    + More optimal DES S-box expressions for PowerPC with AltiVec
    + The bitslice DES C source code has been reworked to allow for
      the use of arbitrary SIMD intrinsics, which was previously only
      implemented for AltiVec as a special case
    + Support for SSE2 and MMX intrinsics with bitslice DES (as an
      alternative to the supplied assembly code) has been added
      (currently only enabled for SSE2 on x86-64)
    + Support for mixed-type longer virtual vectors (such as SSE2+MMX,
      SSE2+ALU, AltiVec+ALU, and other combinations) with bitslice
      DES has been added
    + The loader will now detect password hashes specified on a line
      on their own, not only as part of an /etc/passwd or PWDUMP
      format file
    + When run in "--stdin" mode and reading candidate passwords from
      a terminal (to be typed by the user), John will no longer mess
      with the terminal settings
    + John will now restore terminal settings not only on normal
      termination or interrupt, but also when forcibly interrupted
      with two Ctrl-C keypresses
    + A new numeric variable has been added to the word mangling rules
      engine: "p" for position of the character last found with the
      "/" or "%" commands
    + Support for the use of "--format" along with "--show" or
      "--make-charset" has been added
    + The choice of .rec and .log filenames for custom session names
      has been made more intuitive
    + Support for "\r" (character lists with repeats) and "\p0"
      (reference to the immediately preceding character list/range)
      has been added to the word mangling rules preprocessor
    + The undefined and undocumented behavior of some subtle word
      mangling rules preprocessor constructs has been changed to
      arguably be more sensible
* Thu Feb 11 2010
  - update to
    + Major performance improvements
    + John will now tend to use more memory to achieve better speed
    + Some previously missed common website passwords found on public
      lists of "top N passwords" have been added to the bundled common
      passwords list.
    + Support for back-references and "parallel" ranges has been
      added to the word mangling rules preprocessor.
    + The notion of numeric variables has been introduced into the
      rules engine.
    + New rule commands have been added
    + New rule reject flags have been added
    + The default rulesets for "single crack" and wordlist modes have
      been revised to make use of the new features, for speed, to
      produce fewer duplicates, and to attempt additional kinds of
      candidate passwords.
    + The default for the Idle setting has been changed from N to Y.
* Mon Feb 08 2010
  - only build MMX variant on >= i586
  - guard TARGET=linux-x86-any with %ix86
  - enable building on sparcv9
* Mon Sep 28 2009
  - update to
    + "make check" has been implemented
    + The "--test" option will now take an optional argument - the
      duration of each benchmark in seconds
    + Some very minor bugs that did not affect normal operation have
      been fixed.
    + Some unimportant compiler warnings have been fixed, a source code
      comment has been made more verbose and more complete.
