Fifty days have passed since John The Ripper started cracking on the password file. As you can see, not even one password was guessed by now:
guesses: 0 time: 50:06:35:40 c/s: 972 trying: ns4k7y
Regarding my password policy, which is changing my passwords every month, our attacker would have lost already. I’ll proceed with the cracking for a while to see if we finally will get it.
If you got a good idea on cracking the passwords, let me know – I might give it a try!
