John The Ripper 'No password hashes loaded'
Please forgive the newbiew question, but we all have to start somewhere, right?
I have made a SHA256 password hash. It's super simple. The password is 'password' mixed with the salt and hashed just once. I now want to use a tool to crack it.
I've saved it to a file in a format that I think is correct (see screenshot below).
When running the following command, I get 'No password hashes loaded'
What should I do to get this working please?
Command: john -single passw
You should read the John the Ripper documentation: http://www.openwall.com/john/doc/
Your "hash" is a base64 string, this may explain why john doesn't recognize it, http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-users/2012/06/24/6
