Debian 6 ISPConfig 3 /etc/john
I was browsing around the server this morning and found something I've not seen before. A folder located here: /etc/john
I installed this server on, I believe 3.4.11 and the /etc/john folder shows a changed date of 3.24.11
Inside of this folder /john is: john.conf, john-mail.conf, and john-mail.msg and they are all dated - (changed- 10.17.2009)
It cleared talks about hacking your password and in the msg folder it has a standard message:
[Subject: Bad password!
Your password for account @LOGIN at host @HOSTNAME is too easy!
Please change it as soon as possible.
John the Ripper, an automated password cracker.]
The john.conf has a script which I will post a small amount of it here:
# This file is part of John the Ripper password cracker,
# Copyright (c) 1996-2006,2008 by Solar Designer
# Wordlist file name, to be used in batch mode
Wordlist = /usr/share/john/password.lst
# Use idle cycles only
Idle = N
# Crash recovery file saving delay in seconds
Save = 600
# Beep when a password is found (who needs this anyway?)
Beep = N
There is many more files but it almost looks like a hack to help warn of weakpasswords but honestly, I've not seen this before.
Anyone care to comment?
