I'm currently learning about password cracking, and I have a set of passwords with their respective hash values. I used Hashcat to crack the hash values, just to see how it works, but I got different passwords. After some research, I found out that salts are used while hashing, and I don't know the salt values used.
Is there a way to identify the salt value used in a password hash? I've heard that John the Ripper can extract salt values from password hashes, but I'm not sure how to use it. Can someone provide a step-by-step guide on how to use John the Ripper to extract salt values from password hashes?
I'm also open to any other suggestions or tools that can help me identify the salt value used in a password hash.
One example: Cracked using MD5 Gives

But actual password is: experthead
