    Talking Win2k PWL Files??

    Yo,

    My school has just set up a new network running win2k, i was just wandering if there is any chance of me getting access to passwords at all? or are they all on the server?

    Cheers

    if your talking about finding the file and hacking the passwords or hacking the network(that shouldn't be hard), but the passwords are 256 bit encrypted they have yet to be broken.

    you have a better chance of flying with pigs to mars, than hack the passwords.
    your best bet on geting the passwords is staring over someones shoulder whilest they type it.haha

    BTW: they got pros setting it up?

    yo dude, all you gotta do is work your way into dos, use the copy command to copy the *.pwl file on to your floppy disk, i'm assuming they allow you to use a floppy dick.

    the command once in dos will probably be somet like:
    copy username.pwl a:

    thats:
    copy [file] [destination]

    but i'm not sure if thats right for the copy command, but whatever, you get the procedure. once you have the .pwl file on your comp of the floppy, get a proggy, there are some, try google, you'll just have to some research for getting into dos and other ****.

    win2k just has the command prompt no dos.
    AND IF YOU CAN FIND THE PWL FILE YOUR DOING GOOD!!
    second. copying is probably not allowed for such a file he'd most likely need to be an admin.

    more notes, make sure yer in the right directory, if possible, use the find function in windows and type *.pwl in the search field, that might get you all the *.pwl files, experiment, its all descovery, you should be able to work ya way around it some how, just so long you know your ****...

    is a guarantee that if the .pwl is a password file it will NOT show up in the std search.

    work your way into dos?????? Umm... correct me if I'm mistaken, but Win2k is built on the technology of NT... umm... meaning NO DOS. That's one reason it's more stable... Windows is not plastered on top of DOS in 2K or NT.

    Ah, yes, the great cracking tips from someone who doesn't know how to use copy.... I'd listen to no-one on this one TNT... If you could really just yank pwl files by using a DOS dir command, there'd be a lot less companies using 2K.
