Doesn't do any good to get a sam file from the repair directory if the
admins don't update the sam file using the repair /s option.

Hi there,
as this paper was not detailing NT hacking methods, or WIN2SHIT hacking
i did not mention pwdump2 or other tools which make it easy to
dump sam._ file from winnt/system32/repair/sam._ even if it was SYSKEY ed.

Hi folks,
i have just released another paper about SQL hacking.
have fun in your pen-tests.
any comments, suggestions or insults....?

Just a minor addition/correction -

       Another good way of compromising NT account is, as every one of us
knows, reading the sam._ file under  winnt/repair/sam._ and cracking this
hashed password file with our favorite tool LophtCrack.

       To do this, we will use the extended stored procedure, xp_regread
out of
registry. Below is the function do attain sam._ file
       Xp_regread 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE','SECURITY\SAM\Domains\Account ','F'

If the system has applied syskey, which is default in Win2k, then this
approach will be useless. You'd have to be able to upload other tools,
which you may or may not be able to do.
