John the Ripper and Hashcat – Markov mode comparison – “Take 2”

Recently I did a test on how the Markov mode implementation worked between my two favourite cracking tools, John the Ripper (JTR) and Hashcat (see here). At that time, JTR seemed to be the one finding the most passwords and relevant common words. After that, “atom” the brains behind hashcat was kind enough to allow me to run his updated version of the hashcat Markov utility and see how it performed. The results are below, and they are something. I used the same training data and hash list as previous to make the test results as fair as possible.
