    How do i prove i'm right? I cracked the password.
    Another post with " I'm not a hacker" on the first sentence. It started about a month ago when a friend of mine said that he's ( was ) using the safest password combination. I won't argue with him (yet) but after several minutes of hearing the same "show-off-talk", i decided to put it on test.

    So i told him to give me 2 minutes to crack his password and no peeping. Cracking Windows SAM database is not that hard only if you have the admin rights on your hand.

    I'm using Ophcrack ( Win32 version ) to crack the password. It's a password cracker based on time-memory using rainbow tables. Under a minute, i'm done with the password plus a print out of the password in 24point font size.

    SSTIC04-5k (720MB) and SSTIC04-10k (388MB) are distributes freely unde GNU GPL. SSTIC04-5k is for machine atleast 500M of RAM and the other table runs for machine less than 500M of RAM.

    Don't crack your office SAM database without any approval or you'll never see the sun again ( aka : You're fired!).
