Cracking Windows Vista/XP/2000/NT Passwords via SAM and SYSKEY with Cain, Ophcrack, Saminside, BKhive, etc

Cracking Windows Vista/XP/2000/NT Passwords via SAM and SYSKEY with Cain, Ophcrack, Saminside, BKhive, Samdump2 etc

        I get questions about SAM/SYSKEY cracking so often, and since I'm tired of pointing people to my other tutorials on the same subject, I'm creating this one-stop-shop for info on the topic. I'm putting up this one page with links to all of my videos and articles on how Windows passwords work and how they can be audited/cracked. If one tutorial does not work for you, try another. If none work for you, ask on http://binrev.com , but only if you are interested in learning how things work and not just getting into a box. The "Local Password Cracking Presentation" one covers the most from a technically standpoint, but the other ones may be more helpful for your specific conditions.
