    Default john the ripper bt4 final

    I'm trying to play around with jtr. When I attempt to get my linux password using the following command:

    root@bt:/pentest/passwords/jtr# unshadow /etc/passwd /etc/shadow > mypasswd

    I get an error message: "The program 'unshadow' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
    apt-get install john
    bash: unshadow: command not found"

    I did run: apt-get install john. It seemed to install ok, but if I run the unshadow command again, I get the same error message to install john.

    What am I doing wrong ?

    Also besides having to do ./ you need to make sure you are in the proper directory, I dont think that john installs into the path.

    Thanks CKing. That ./ did the trick.

    Beer and Pentesting don't get along.

    If the time stamp for my post is less than 15 minutes old, hold off on the flamethrower, there's a pretty decent chance I'm going to change it.
