Change your password with sticky keys

August 18th, 2010 by admin in Privilege Escalation, windows

Forgot the administrator password? There are many ways to access a Windows installation if you forgot the administrator password. Today I’ll show you another procedure to reset the Windows password by replacing the Sticky Keys application. This program allows you to use the function keys SHIFT, CTRL, ALT, or the Windows key by typing one key after the other instead of pressing them simultaneously with the second key. The main advantage of this password reset method is that you don’t need third-party software; another plus is that it is easy to carry out because no Registry hack is required, as when you offline enable the built-in administrator.

Please note that resetting the password from an account other than the corresponding user account always means that the user loses the credentials stored in the Windows Vault, stored Internet Explorer passwords, and files that you encrypted with the Encrypting File System (EFS). Of course, if you have a backup of these credentials, you can restore them; likewise, if you have exported the private EFS key, you can import it again after you have reset the password.

Like with all other solutions that allow you to reset the Windows password without having an account on the corresponding computer, you have to boot from a second operating system and access the Windows installation while it is offline.

You can do this with a bootable Windows PE USB stick or by using Windows RE. You can start Windows RE by booting the Windows Vista or Windows 7 setup DVD and then selecting “Repair” instead of “Install Windows.”

By the way, you can’t use the Windows XP boot CD for this purpose because its Recovery Console will ask for a password for the offline installation. However, you can use a Vista or Windows 7 DVD to reset a forgotten Windows administrator password on Windows XP.

This works because Windows RE, which is based on Vista or Windows 7, will let you launch a command prompt with access to an offline installation without requiring a password.

Kon Boot 1.1

May 10th, 2010 by Dev Team in cracking, Privilege Escalation, windows

Kon Boot 1.1
We reviewed Kon Boot 1.0 last year HERE which was a great breakthrough program that allowed you to boot into a Windows machine and bypass the logon screen without entering a password. To accomplish this, Kon Boot hooks the bios on the fly subverting the Windows kernel authentication temporarily and allowing you access. Since this is a temporary process the computer is back to normal when you reboot. This allowed you to access the computer without having to take the time to reset the password or crack it, and it left the computer untouched. Now, a year later, Kon Boot v1.1 has been released with new features, such as booting from floppy,CD, or usb, privilege escalation support which allows you to gain SYSTEM privileges from ANY account on the system. For example, you can boot from Kon Boot and log in as Guest and run ‘Net User’ command to add a new user,reset admin passwords etc as SYSTEM

It also has a bunch of new bug fixes/updates.

  1. – Added 64-bit environment support
  2. – Added USB support tools (grldr, klmemusb)
  3. – Added debugging code to make it easier to track down various compatibility problems
  4. – Fixed bug in Windows 7 support failures
  5. – Removed Linux support
  6. – Many performance improvements to source code
  7. – Improved BIOS support by reducing code size significantly

Unfortunately it is no longer free. But for a meager price of $15.99 for a personal license, it gives you free updates and support for a period of 6 months. You can still use it without restrictions after that period.
They also offer a commercial license, for $75.99 with 1 year of support and updates, allowing you to use on business environment.
To purchase Kon Boot v1. 1,visit their website

We are also giving away 10 personal licenses this week to some lucky readers!!! More details to come!!!

3. Click on the View or print homegroup password link.
4. Write down this password down, or click on Print this page to print the passoword. When done, close this window.
