    Default Use it wisely!

    1st of all IT'S YOUR PURPOSE LEGAL? YOU USE IT ON YOUR OWN PC? IF NO IS THE ANSWER, WE CAN'T HELP YOU!, GET THE H**L(sry moderators) OUT OF HERE, but if your answer is "YES, it's legal" than I will help you:

    You can do this from the windows box too, but we're talking about Backtrack:
    >>all the instruction are done from shell, in /tmp folder<<

    Boot in backtrack and make sure your windows harddrive is mounted:
    suppose the windows hdd is "/dev/hda1"
    Code:
    mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1
    First you must to "extract" the key of the system which is in the "system" file located on the windows hdd
    Code:
    bkhive /mnt/sda1/WINDOWS/system32/config/SAM saved-systemkey
    Now we must dump the SAM file using samdump2:
    Code:
    samdump2 saved-systemkey passwordhashfile
    And in the end we use the well known john the ripper:
    Code:
    john -i passwordhashfile
    Keep in mind, if you use BT4b you will need SSE2 capable CPU to use john( I just found out now when I tested the given instructions to be sure just in case )

    BUT, if you have installed windows xp as default and you don't typed a administrator password in installer than it's much easier to boot in safe mode( pressing F8 before windows boots) and login in the "Administrator" account and just remove the password from control panel>user accounts>[your account].

    Like my DSA teacher always says: "K.I.S.S.--keep it simple,stupid--"

    Well if it was for doing something illegal you just gave away the keys to the kingdom as it were. So why bother to even ask?

    Yeah I know we all love how people tell you to not break the law and then proceed to tell you how to do it.
    Makes for great morning reading.

    you can also in a cmd.exe given if cmd isnt disabled do @ next point in time /interatctive cmd.exe when the new cmd window pops up kill explorer.exe then in the new interactive window type explorer.exe and you will gain full system root higher access then even an admin account

    If he want to break the law, he will do it anyway.
    Telling him that the info's are not for any illegal purpose, I'm "released" from any responsibility about how he uses the tips I posted
    Great minds have purposes, others have wishes
