Currently supported hash types for the Multiforcer

Documentation on supported hash types has been weak - I just created a wiki page to fix this.

Note that SHA256, in addition to being somewhat slow right now, is not yet supported in 1.30 - it will be added in 1.31.

Some new anti-spam measures...

As some people have noticed, I've been fighting forum spam and wiki spam for a while.  I've decided to try a few new things to combat this.

- I'm now using peoplesign as my capcha provider.  This, in theory, is harder for bots but still easy for humans.
- I've integrated Stop Forum Spam with my phpBB3 install to help block spammer registrations.
- I've modified the Cryptohaze Wiki to use the phpBB forum database instead of its own internal registration, and to require a valid account for editing.

This should, in theory, help reduce the flow of garbage into my forum.  Any other suggestions or things people find useful?

Cryptohaze tools 1.30 release is out!

Cryptohaze 1.30 is out as of now - go ahead & download the new version before reading on.

The big news is that the Multiforcer now has proper resume support, and a more robust workunit class to handle network clients disconnecting properly.

Also, the WebTables feature for GRTCrack now will avoid disclosing the target hashes over the web requests.  This feature is enough that I will have an entire other post related to it coming soon.

If you're interested in either of these features, read on - otherwise, download & enjoy the various bugfixes.  If you're on Windows, and using GRTCrack, you will really want to grab 1.30 - large files were not being handled quite right previously.
