The ShowCode.asp simply uses some InStr and Response.Writes from different
printline statements as it is expecting some HTML or ASP source files.  The
sam._ in the repair dir is binary.  You won't expose the hash this way.  If
they have the showcode vuln, I'm sure you can monkey around enought to
execute some back end code to either copy the sam where you can get it or
just ftp it to yourself. (the latter is more difficult, but works in a

Then import the sam into L0pht and go nuts.

Subject: [PEN-TEST] Cracking a Stolen SAM


I'm currently performing a penetration test, and I was able to access the
SAM file located in the WINNT/repair directory.  Specifically, I exploited
the showcode.asp vulnerability to "see" the sam._ file in the \WINNT\repair
directory.  I screen-scraped the relevant contents to a Notepad file, and
saved it.

Here's where I began to guess.  First, I ran the file (I named it sam._)
through l0phtcrack and through the cracker on CyberCop, but it didn't take.
I then ran the file through the Windows "expand" command, and ran the
resulting file through the tools.  Still nothing.

Here's where I'm stuck.  I'm assuming that there are some funky control
characters in the screen-scrape file that I don't know about.  I tried some
traffic analysis work on the file, but I quickly got a headache.

Can anyone please help?  Thanks.
