Malware comes to OS X. System performance down lately? Might want to check your activity monitor for this one.

After looking at the script it appears that your system performance would only slow down under a few circumstances:

1] Someone installed opener
2] You rebooted more than once afterwards (the first time the script runs it 'nice's the john process so it would not be noticed, later runs are not niced.
3] John has not already cracked all your passwords (once cracked, john no longer runs so there would be no performance hit after the passwords are cracked.)

Well, that's even worse then. Horribly innovative.
