I'm trying to crack this Solaris 10 DES hash (dKVMJs0zjvzQQ). The password policy on this machine is set to PASSLENGTH=6 so I set the mask to ?a?a?a?a?a?a but oclhashcat never cracked it. I thought that mask pretty much covered all the possibilities but obviously I'm mistaken. What am I doing wrong? Is it the salt that's the problem?
PASSLENGTH=6 means the password has to be a minimum of 6 chars. descrypt has a max of 8 chars, so the password could be 6, 7, or 8 chars long. Your mask only did length 6. You still have lengths 7 & 8 to search.
I assumed PASSLENGTH meant "password length" not "minimum password length". LOL, silly me. Awesome, thanks for the quick reply!
Nope, read the manpage
