Repeated Bug Notification when Running Hashcat (git master)
#1
Dear all,

I've encountered a cryptic error message that is printed repeatedly when running hashcat: "BUG feof()!!"

Our machine:
* ASUS Sabretooth X99
* Intel Core i7 5820K (LGA 2011-v3)
* 2x HyperX Fury 16GiB DDR4-2133
* 2x EVGA GTX 1080 Founders Edition
* Samsung 850 EVO Basic 500GiB
* Corsair HX1000i
* NZXT Kraken X61
* NZXT H440 V2

Running:
NixOS 16.09 with hashcat from github (current master)

*EDIT* Build command sequence:

Code:
$ git clone --recursive https://github.com/hashcat/hashcat.git hashcat-master
$ cd hashcat-master
$ make install PREFIX=$HOME/.local


Command:
Code:
$ hashcat --session sess --username -o output.plain -a 0 -m 1000 -w 3 -r ../rules/T0XlC.rule hashes.ntlm ../wordlists/rockyou.txt


Let me know if I can provide anything else.

Do you use make install target?

I used the following:
Code:
$ make install PREFIX=$HOME/.local

Also, I tested the same command line again now with v3.20 (instead of git master) and I still get the same message over and over again. Could it be something to do with file permissions? Is there any way to get more debug output from hashcat?

I believe I found the problem. The Rockyou dictionary had a bad file encoding. Setting it to utf-8 from within vim stopped hashcat from complaining.
