I have an embedded device running Armbian which I was able to get the drive image from. The entry in
/etc/shadow combined with
/etc/passwd after unshadowing is this:
I am just learning JtR now (and Unix in general). I have found most of the documentation very good with JtR, and perhaps I'm not asking the right question, but what do I do about the salt in this?
If I use the following command:
john john-input2 --wordlist=manyword.txt --format=SHA512crypt-opencl -dev=gpu
Will JtR automatically account for the salt + hash, or will it fail to ever find the correct password, even if it is present in the
manyword.txt file because of the salt being unaccounted for?
I come here as my last resort as hours of searching has not led me to the answer.
