Cracking Windows Passwords
- 28 Comment
It seems like many people are in need of resetting or cracking forgotten passwords lately so I decided to find a good Password Cracking program. After trying out a few I like Ophcrack live CD the best for passwords under 14 characters.
Ophcrack is a Windows password cracker based on rainbow tables. It is a very efficient implementation of rainbow tables done by the inventors of the method. It comes with a GTK+ Graphical User Interface and runs on Windows, Mac OS X (Intel CPU) as well as on Linux.
Now restart your computer and boot from the Live CD.
When Ophcrack finishing booting you will be presented with a list of all of the accounts on the computer. Then click Launch to start the program.
Depending on the difficulty of your password it could take a few seconds to a couple minutes. Then right down the password remove the CD and reboot back into Windows and enter your password.
Then create a password reset disk for the next time.
