Hashcat keeps restarting after it finishes?
Thank you for your response.

Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean. I have searched for the concept of segment and cant find any appropriate answers that I can see. Are you saying basically that its still trying the list. I found the same thing was happening in prince mode as well.

IF I understand you properly, and it is just continuing the word list how do we know where it is at in its process. eg are we 1/4 or 1/2 way finished the complete job.


I stopped hc which gave me a number to use when restarting. I used it and oddly now get a segment error.

./hashcat-cli64.bin -m 2500 -a 8 out.hccap new_8u_link_eng.txt -s 236529117
Initializing hashcat v2.00 with 2 threads and 256mb segment-size...

Added hashes from file out.hccap: 1 (1 salts)
Activating quick-digest mode for single-hash with salt

[s]tatus [p]ause [r]esume [b]ypass [q]uit => Segmentation fault


If i start the job from the beginning, in other words without the "-s 236529117" it works fine.
I have seen a number of posts on this but unclear how to proceed. Some say its a bug that was fixed long ago. Others suggest old or wrong libraries. This is running The-Distribution-Which-Does-Not-Handle-OpenCL-Well (Kali) linux 2.0 so fairly new. I tried to reboot but to no avail.

Thank you.
