Hi guys! Today in this article i am gonna show you how to hack Windows xp/vista/7 administrator password using pwdump7 .
I would like to tell you that this method cannot provide you 100% success, but this method is very effective and easy to use and mostly the passwords are cracked . I am here using windows7 . Note that your antivirus will alert you. Ignore it and make an exception to the resident shield of your antivirus. If you do not know how to make exceptions then google it :) .
So lets start. Download pwdump7. Click links to download . Place it to your desktop including its libeay32.dll file.
Run cmd.exe by clicking on Start and type in the search box "cmd" then press Enter.
pwdump7 > myfile.txt
This will write the LM or NTLM hashes into the myfile.txt which will be saved on your Desktop.
Now Download Cain & Abel . Install it, Open it. Click on Cracker>LM&NTLM Hashes.
Now right click anywhere between the screen then select Add to list. Click on Import hashes from a text file. Browse the myfile.txt by clicking "..." button.
Now you will see usernames on your screen. Select the username or all usernames whom you want to crack passwords. Right click>Dictionary attack>NTLM HASHES. Now Add the wordlist.txt from c:/program files/Cain/Wordlists if it is not shown. You can also make you own text file or download huge wordlists from the internet and add it for the cain to crack passwords.
Click Start! and after sometime you might see the cracked passwords. You can make acounts as example and try.
Do note that This is for EDUCATIONAL purpose only.
Also note that if your password is of 8 characters then Go for md5 hashes in Cain, here LM & NTLM hashes will not work.
Thanks for reading!
