Invitation to john-users team

john-users team was formed in the community of john-users mailing list and consists of enthusiasts of FOSS and of hash cracking then. So it is important for us to use only FOSS tools. We are looking for new active members who would fit into this atmosphere well. You need to be nice, active and ready to learn on your own. You don't need to be a great cracker or to have a lot of hardware. In the contests, ideas can help much more than raw hardware power.

Requirements to participate on john-user team:

The team uses a server to collaborate during the contest. So every member needs an user account there.

So if you would like to participate, send a private mail to Aleksey Cherepanov[1] with the following info:
