Subject: Install John the Ripper via Ubuntu Store


For some time now, we have a John the Ripper SNAP package available on 
Ubuntu Store. The plan is to release it as stable and tested, but 
offering recent bug fixes and improvements.

To install it, on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, you only need to run a:
$ sudo snap install john-the-ripper

To test it, do:
$ john-the-ripper --list=build-info

John run confined under a restrictive security sandbox by default. For 
example, it won't be able to read or write any file outside its "box". 
So, word-lists, hash files, and so on, should be copied to the "box". 
Below, an example:
$ export DATA=/home/userX/snap/john-the-ripper/5/.john
$ john-the-ripper -list=format-tests | cut -f3 > $DATA/
$ john-the-ripper -form=SHA512crypt $DATA/

The highlights:
- fallback for CPU and OMP.
- regex and prince modes available.

Happy cracking

PS: John the Ripper snap should work (sooner or later), unmodified, on 
Arch, CentOS, Debian, Elementary, Fedora, Gentoo, RHEL, SUSE... and of 
course the whole family of *buntu's.
PS1: BTW: using Windows Subsystem for Linux, even on Windows 10.
