vBulletin < v3.8.5 salt length issue
#1
I'm trying to crack an old vBulletin (2611) hash, with a salt length of 5 characters (usually they are 3 characters but this one is 5), and hashcat doesn't like it " Token length exception"

I know other people have been able to crack these with a 5 character salt length, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks

But this is different from 2811?

My mistake, the salt length is 6 characters not 5; and so yes it is different from 2811.

If there's no direct support for this length in hashcat as shipped, you could pull the source from GitHub and modify the expected salt length.

(Also, just in case - make sure that the command line that you're attempting works with the example hash at https://hashcat.net/wiki/doku.php?id=example_hashes)
