on another note,

my fairly complex alphanumeric+symbol password IS in the dump, though not prepended truncated with 0's and the other one I found, which my coworker admitted was too short and alpha only, was in the dump with prepended 0's.

This could validate the fact that the truncated hashes are actually already cracked.

Mine was 5 characters, alpha and numeric, but no special characters. It was in there, prepended with 0's.


At the very least, it should have been longer.

Same here - mine was all alpha characters, seven characters, and the hash with five 0's was in the file. Guess who just changed their LinkedIn password today? And included some numbers?
