No support for SHA512(Unix) passwords over 16 characters?
#1
So, I don't think this was ever added. I wanted to bring it up both to make sure I'm right, and bring it to someone's attention in case it got overlooked.

In oclHashcat-plus v0.15 support for passwords longer than 15 characters was added with the exception of...
Quote:

  • modes 500, 1600, 1800, 3200, 5300, 6300 and 7400 are limited to 16 characters
NOTE: We're planing to remove the limits for these modes in the next version.

The next version turned into oclHashcat v1.00. It doesn't appear that the limits were removed in this version, or any later versions of oclHashcat that I can find. However, in hashcat v0.48 they were removed for the CPU powered version.

I'd post this on Trac, but it doesn't seem to want me to register. (Warning: You must specify a valid email address.)
