    hehe, good idea. but don't leave any time logs and DON'T get caught. that may not be exactly legal if you know what i mean.

    and see what they got running on the system before you touch nothin.

    If they are runing a Domain network all the passwords for loggin on to that domain is stored on the server. There usally is one Admin password for loggin into the computer if the server goes down and can't verify the Domain loggin. That pssword will not let you out on the network. If everything is correct setup and configed I wouldn't waste my time on hacking in. And forget the "copy PWL to a floppy" There is alot more security built in behind the screen then you see when you log in... SID, etc,,,Despite popular belive win2k is a pretty safe nos.

    If the network admin let you install any kind of programs or keyloggers he shouldn't be an admin.

    You can set the user rights so that you can't install anything unless your logged in as an admin. If he is there or not doesn't matter If he really did his homework he set it up so you only can run approved programs. But then there is only one way to find out.

    Our computers are locked down fairly well, excpet they're win98 *evil grin*...Our programming teacher is the admin for all the computers and he gave his programming classes the passwords to get onto the netwrok, and the one for the internet (Which I filtered to a few friends). Buit then we have "Foolproof" a stupid little program to say the least, but it's effective. Luckily the guy behind me has the password, which I wrote down. So now I own those computers. The funny thing is that if I really wanted into those computers, I could always open up the MS-DOS console and delete it, cuz it only prohibts deleting from explorer. and if that didn't work, I do delete it from notepad...a computer's never actually "secure", remeber that. the only secure computer is a computer that's been blown into 1 million pieces...

    Haha, the funny thing about foolproof is that I'm pretty sure I could take it off that easily, but I remember him saying it's on a low-level format, and that ever reformating won't destroy it. they sad last time they forgot the password that they had to use some military reformatting software...

    Win9X never worked well in a network from a security perspective. There is no secrets behind low level formating. he just want to scare you guys.

    I hate you -ken- I've spent 2 days so far tring to open up paint so I have something to do. Last year I had some class that we learned how to use office. So I had a whole much of files that did not open with any thing and when I clicked it I got the open with dialog box. NO wait I have access to note pad I can create a file with a .344 extention or something like that.

    I think in windows 98 you can just delete them or more
    saftly move them. This is windows 2000 so you *shouldn't*
    beable to touch them.

    I guess he won't have to remove them then

    I remember foolproof from school too, there's an autoexec.bat
    entry that starts it up. I hated it because it wouldn't allow me to run dos excutables and for some reason I couldn't get a binary with turbo pascal for windows. I never actually disabled it though.

    years ago, at Uni, computer time was very short and once used you did not get more.
    Someone wrote a program that looked exactly like the log on screen for the terminals.

    He would log on and run this program. He would then sit at the back and wait for a victim to come to what seemed a unused terminal. The progam would catch the victims log on but use the hackers time.

    After that though the hacker would use all the victims time before catching another.

    NOW you would get ten years for that in Aussie.

    If you MUST get the passwords use a security test program, lots around.

    In WIN9x try,
    At log on write down the USERNAME but cancel the log on ie fail to enter password.
    You will be let in and then FIND the USERNAME.pwl file and rename ie USERNAME.pwl to say USERNAME.old
    Restart the computer and see what happens.

    Another example of M$ security. Hey it don't sell more software so why put it in?
