CRACK THE SAM

Hello friends...I have posted topics on windows xp password cracking...Now it's time to hack, i.e to get the admin password without altering it...Hope you guys will enjoy it...

This method takes three steps:

1. First what is SAM file???All of the passwords on a windows xp are stored in a SAM(Security Accounts Manager) file...This file is located on your computer’s hard drive in the directory "C:\WINDOWS\system32\config".It stores user's passwords in a hashed format (in LM hash and NTLM hash).The SAM file cannot be moved or copied while Windows is running, since the Windows kernel obtains and keeps an exclusive filesystem lock on the SAM file.



2. Second how to obtain the SAM file???To obtain this SAM file, boot your system with a Live CD(Puppy Linux/Ubuntu)...Nevigate to the config folder and take a copy of SAM file in another drive...

Note: Download one of the versions of Puppy Linux iso file from HERE and burn the iso file...Your live cd is ready...Puppy Linux 4.3.1 is the latest one:



3. Third how to crack the SAM file???Now use some password cracking softwares like SAMinside or Lophtcrack(LC5) in order to decrypt the hash file...This is basically a bruteforce attack...It may take several minutes...All the passwords will be shown as NT-Password as shown in figure...



You are done...Reboot your system and login your admin account with the password you already hacked...

Note: I personally used SAMinside...It's simple and works perfect...Download the cracker from HERE and crack the SAM file...If you face any problem just post your comment...

Extract the file using WinRAR.
