System Hacking

Table of contents:

  • The NetBIOS Auditing Tool (NAT) is a command-line automated password guessing tool.
  • Windows authentication protocols include

    • LM authentication Used by 95/98/ME and based on DES.
    • NTLM authentication Used by NT until service pack 3 and based on DES and MD4.
    • NTLM v2 authentication Used post NT service pack 2 and based on MD4 and MD5.
    • Kerberos Implemented in Windows 2000 and created by MIT in 1988.
  • LM passwords are considered weak. The maximum 14 character password is divided into two seven character parts; the two hashed results are concatenated and stored as the LM hash, which is stored in the SAM. Each piece can be cracked separately.
  • NTFS alternate data streams (ADS) was developed to provide for compatibility outside the Windows world with structures such as the Macintosh Hierarchical File System (HFS). It is a prime tool that can be used by hackers to hide tools. It only works with NTFS drives.
