Login into backtrack without password
change pw using passwd in terminal. Ctrl+L to lock the pc
user can come in press ctrl+alt+backspace (reset x-windows) on the locked pc
after some time a backtrack login screen will popup (it's not the terminal but a gui)
password: *leave it blank*
bam ur into the backtrack system... it's not the locked session... but is still access to a physical system without the password
*if you type in an incorrect password... it will still say "invalid login"
i dunno if backtrack is made to be secure like this... but someone could obviously get into a backtrack system using this.
For this i was using Backtrack 3, and i was running it from ram
i'm sorry it does keep your locked session running and the password is still globally the new pw on the machine... so if the new person logged in without providing a password they can run
passwd : enter a new password...
then they will globally change the password. (they can do this since bt users always have sudo privileges)
when i'm running off a usb stick i can't get multiple sessions going (i was running VNC and SSH server when i was running off of ram)
>.> like is this a bug? i feel like this post is about to get sent to the idiot corner lol
you need to configure the kdm login to enable blank passwords
