Thread subject: Security Override :: Decryption Level 5
Posted by tbbqolrjbeyq on 03/09/2013 22:50:31
Hi, I was doing fine in the decryption levels until I got to level 5. I am not sure how to complete this one. I have tried running cain and able to decrypt the md5 hash, but I wasn't sure the character set to use. I tried the largest one, but it was going to take 1.46*10^17 years. That is a little too long for me. So then I tried googling the hash, and there were no results. I am trying john the ripper, but it has been running for a few hours and I still don't have the hash cracked. My CPU is running way hotter than I would like it though, and I have my fans Full-Power now. I don't know what do. I am going to keep JTR running for now, and and hopefully within the next few hours it will be decrypted. Does anyone have any ideas, like that I might be doing something wrong, or is there something I can do to speed up the process? Is there a specific character set I could look at, or length of encrypted text? or something?
