I would normally think the salt, in hex there, would always be divisible by 2 when in hex chars, not an odd number (like five chars). Although I suppose anything is possible.

The first few hashes look really hairy, lots of leading zeros. Reminds me of finding a PoW hash in Bitcoin mining

So can someone help with the disqus format, which looks like this?

Code: Select all

```

Is SHA1(SALTPLAIN) the same as hashcat mode 120, i.e. sha1($salt.$pass)? Maybe there's an iteration in there that I'm missing?

Thanks for any help.
