I have 6 archive files in 7zip format. They have the same password. I use the perl script
7z2john to generate a hash for each of the archives.
I try to combine the hashes into a hashes file, then pass it to
john. Is it possible to tell
john the hashes representing the same password?
$ ./JohnTheRipper/run/john combined.hashes --session=COMBINED Warning: detected hash type "7z", but the string is also recognized as "7z-opencl" Use the "--format=7z-opencl" option to force loading these as that type instead Using default input encoding: UTF-8 Loaded 6 password hashes with 6 different salts (7z, 7-Zip [SHA256 256/256 AVX2 8x AES]) Cost 1 (iteration count) is 524288 for all loaded hashes Loaded hashes with cost 2 (padding size) varying from 0 to 8 Loaded hashes with cost 3 (compression type) varying from 0 to 1 Will run 8 OpenMP threads Press 'q' or Ctrl-C to abort, almost any other key for status
I hope the password could be solved easier than just 1 hash (or it's just my imagination?).
I tried to solve the password using 1 hash, but
john spent more than 120 days to crack, still no luck.
