Full Version: Hashcat 0.41 Combination mode not loading more than one dictionary?

Trying to crack two-word passwords with hashcat seems to have an issue in 0.41 (oclhashcat-plus worked fine, by the way) - it's only loading one dictionary and then combining that dictionary with itself.

I was under the impression I could combine two or more different dictionaries, i.e. a large and a small dictionary (phpbb plus a larger dictionary, for example), or a small dictionary three times, for example.

hashcat-cli64.exe --hash-mode 131 --attack-mode 1 OneHashOnly.hash X:\dir\English.txt "X:\dir\English (2).txt"

Intel Core i7
167326 word wordlist

Note that the status screen lists the first dictionary's wordcount, but the timing of 27.29M plains/s  and the time taken do correctly match that count squared, and it does correctly match the actual two word password I'm testing.

combinator mode works differently in cpu hashcat than in oclHaschat and combinator.bin.
Thank you for informing me!
