Hack Windows Admin Password through Linux

With all the good intentions you can think of, name it a tutorial purpose or something to learn purely for the fun and never to harm anyone, I will now show you a simple way to hack a Windows administrator password using Linux. You will only need a Live CD, and for this example, we will utilize Ubuntu.
  1. Install a program called chntpw$ sudo apt-get install chntpw
  2. After successfully installing chntpw, you have to access the Windows NTFS partition by mounting it and allowing read/write support. A good tutorial on how to do this can be found HERE.
  3. After that, use your command line skills by navigating to WINDOWS/system32/config
  4. Once inside the config directory, issue this command:
    $ sudo chntpw SAM
  5. A long display of information will follow. Just ignore them.
  6. Once you are prompted to reset the password, it is recommended to leave the password blank with an asterisk (*).
  7. Reboot, and you can now login to Windows with full administrative access.
You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.
