Os x leopard updating boot cache
Most notably, these include fixes for Linux kernel I/O vector array overrun (CVE-2015-1805) and Open VZ container escape (CVE-2015-2925), glibc GHOST (CVE-2015-0235), Open SSL FREAK (CVE-2015-0204), and BIND TKEY query Do S (CVE-2015-5477).
Our Passwords^14, Skytalks, and WOOT '14 presentation slides are now available online: Energy-efficient bcrypt cracking by Katja Malvoni, Solar Designer, and Josip Knezovic.
These are Simon Marechal's (aka Bartavelle) Distributable probabilistic candidate password generators and Automatic wordlists mangling rules generation, as well as a new revision of Password security: past, present, future, now co-authored by Solar Designer and Simon Marechal.
John the Ripper has been selected for Rapid7's Magnificent7 program, which will enable us to implement parallel and distributed processing enhancements sooner rather than later.
It is also the biggest -jumbo update so far, with over 40,000 lines of code added since -jumbo-5.
Besides GPU support, this release adds support for Mac OS X keychains, Kee Pass 1.x, Password Safe, ODF and Office 2007/2010 files, Firefox/Thunderbird master passwords, RAR -p mode, WPA-PSK, VNC and SIP challenge/responses, HMAC-SHA-*, IBM RACF, built-in SHA-crypt, Dragon Fly BSD SHA-2, Django, Drupal 7, Wolt Lab BB3, new EPi Server, GOST R 34.11-94, Linked In raw SHA-1 flavor - with Open MP, CUDA, and/or Open CL for many of these.
A new snapshot of Owl-current is available, including ISO images, Open VZ container templates, binary packages for i686 and x86_64, and full sources.
Additionally, optimizations were made and Open MP/CUDA/Open CL added for many of the previously-supported hashes and ciphers.
AMD XOP support was added for MD4, MD5, and SHA-1, for at least a 20% speedup on Bulldozer at hashes building on these primitives and making use of the SIMD interface.
Changes since the previous set of ISOs and templates (May 8, 2012) include a further minor update of the Linux/Open VZ kernel to latest "testing" version in Open VZ's RHEL5-based branch (with our usual changes on top of that), new versions of binutils, tcsh, xinetd, and Open SSL (the latter two with minor security fixes), and minor changes to many Owl packages.
The system has been rebuilt with the new binutils, which required some tweaks in various packages (now included, so further rebuilds work seamlessly).
We're a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2013.
