--- Begin Message ---Package: john Version: 1.6-33 Severity: minor The john manpage says: "Once John finds a password, it will be printed to the terminal and saved into a file called ~/john.pot." and "While cracking, you can press any key for status, or Ctrl+C to abort the session, saving point information to a file ( ~/restore by default)." However, a trial run of john demonstrates that it creates ./john.pot and ./restore (i.e. CWD not $HOME). I was writing a quick patch to the manpage when I noticed that it seems the upstream documents also refer to these filenames and others similar, so it will have to be a bit more extensive. -- System Information: Debian Release: 3.1 APT prefers unstable APT policy: (500, 'unstable') Architecture: i386 (i686) Kernel: Linux 2.6.11-jmtd Locale: LANG=en_GB.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=en_GB.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8) Versions of packages john depends on: ii debconf 126.96.36.199 Debian configuration management sy ii dpkg 1.10.28 Package maintenance system for Deb ii libc6 2.3.2.ds1-22 GNU C Library: Shared libraries an -- debconf information: john/cronjob: false john/noconfigfile: john/cronjob-replacement: true john/wordlist: /usr/share/john/password.lst john/no-replacement:

This was true some versions ago. I don't know when, I don't know how, it has been fixed in the meanwhile, and 1.7.2-3 (currently in testing/unstable, going for lenny release) doesn't present this bug anymore. Now it saves everything under ~/.john/. I've updated the manpage, it will be present in 1.7.2-4, which will be released somewhen after the Lenny release. Kindly, David -- . ''`.
