I was going thru De-Ice Disk 1 for a project at school and successfully made it through. But on a subsequent attempt I got to the offline password cracking the shadow file using john and got the following error message and have been trying for the last day or 2 to figure out why.
The shadow and the password file are on the desktop with content in them.
root@bt:/pentest/passwords/jtr# ./john --rules --wordlist=/root/passwords --users=root /root/shadow
No password hashes loaded
I am using vmware if it helps.
Solved!! Deleted john.pot......thanx all....lol
