RE: MS SQL Server

You have access to the data files themselves.  Why not download a copy
and import them on a local copy of sql server?


Grab the SAM from this local box and run it through LC5 to see if you
can grab the SQL Server User's username and password.  I say this,
because if they were savy enough to remove the local admin access to sql
server, they probably did the right thing and created a user that the
server runs as.


Use this machine as a spring board to attack the AD

Hey All,

Ok, so here's the deal, I've managed to compromise a Win2k 
server at a clients site, and this also has thier Peoplesoft 
and Remedy databases on it, running on MS SQL 2000. I have 
been able to successfully add myself to the local 
Administrators group, and can now TS into the box in 
question. I have absolutely no rights on the SQL server 
though, so any pointers here would be greatly appreciated!  
I found a backup of the Remedy db, and by setting up a SQL 
server on one of my machines managed to restore it, and I now 
have access to that, thatnks to a load of MS SQL howto's 
online, but I am more concerned about getting the Peoplesoft 
db data, but no such joy with finding backups lying around.

Ideally I would like to try and avoid commercial tools, but 
as far as compromising a SQL server, I've never done it 
before, and could do with any help that I can get here.
