Subject: reconstruct usable hash from separate hash and salt


I've got a dump of Salted SHA1 hashes, but unfortunately the salt is not attached to the hash.
For example:

	hash of salt.password: B4A2E194AF922B03470C8D17B5613DC2DE912727
	salt: 1357926
	password: dwayne

I've tried to recreate a hash that john can understand:

	./ 31333537393236B4A2E194AF922B03470C8D17B5613DC2DE912727 | base64 -e

where 31333537393236 is hex of salt.

yielding to this password file:


Then I've tried to crack it, and failed:

	./john --session=toto /tmp/toto --wordlist=/tmp/dwayne --pot=toto.pot            
	Using default input encoding: UTF-8
	Loaded 1 password hash (Salted-SHA1 [SHA1 128/128 AVX 4x])
	Press 'q' or Ctrl-C to abort, almost any other key for status
	0g 0:00:00:00 DONE (2016-11-11 11:44) 0g/s 21.33p/s 21.33c/s 21.33C/s dwayne
	Session completed

I guess I've failed to reconstruct the SSHA hash, but I don't know how to fix that... Any idea?
