Hello everyone, i am having a problem with John the ripper (before i start, just to let you know i have used it before but i had to take it off for personal reasons for a while).
Well i have tried re-downloading it and after i extract it and all that there is no actual program just things like the password list etc. I have a feeling it is my virus scanner deleting it but I'm not sure. Could someone give me some advice, and for now could i send someone the hash for basic 12.
P.S: I am new to this website (started yesterday) but i already have a little "hacking" experience, but this is probably for a different thread so ill leave it at that.

Disable/add exception in whatever security program(s) you have running.
"Note: a few Windows "antivirus" and "anti-spyware" products have started to recognize password recovery tools as if they were "trojans". This is how those products' vendors inflate their detected "virus" counts. The effect is that end-users are no longer able to check password recovery software for real viruses. If this affects you, please complain to your antivirus vendor."
It's on the freaking frontpage of Openwall.
