Subject: Incorrect charset file format - is there a way to upgrade these?


I believe I am attempting to use an old charset (.chr) file with the latest
JtR (jumbo / communitty edition). When trying to use KoreLogic's
"rockyou.chr" character set file, available at their website (rockyou.chr
<>), I get the
following error:

Incorrect charset file format: $JOHN/rockyou.chr

Looking at the CHR file, I notice that the header contains "CHR2S";
however, the other .chr files in the JtR directory have "CHR3" in the

If this character set file is indeed old, is there a way to either
convert/upgrade the rockyou.chr character set file, or some option to use
old char set file formats?

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you!
