Using special software... Linux... This makes me a potential criminal 🤣😂

"Linux, Special software" ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
@meneer Waiting for the FBI raid on my house now.
@polaris fingers crossed 🤪
@meneer Yay, me too!
@meneer Also, why do they talk about a 'portion' of a password here? Do they store passwords 50/50 plain text/hash or what?
@MatejLach beats me... old lanman hash was 7char hash + 7char hash. if second part was blank, the second part of pw hash would already be known, always the same hash. That would explain it 🤔
@ckeen and how about Android, the superspy operating system, used by Google snoops...
@ckeen we may understand that. But poliyicians and da's may not 😉
@piggo nice hack 😁
@meneer I've switched my terminals from gray-on-black to black-on-gray so that I'm no longer considered a hacker :D
@brnrd and don't wear your hoody!
Hilarious! Then, we are special people, like martians or people with high IQ?!
@jolt2bolt are ahead-people 😁
They were probably using a Linux LiveCD with ntpasswd loaded. We used it quite a bit in the .mil to reset local admin passwords.
@fewl I used to play around with Peter Nordahl's nt pw reset tool. on a 3.5 inch diskette, magic as long as sam wasn't encrypted 😁
