Ophcrack Failed to find my password on Windows 10
« on: March 22, 2018, 05:34 AM »
I got my laptop upgraded to windows 10 a few days ago and Ophcrack works well to help me find lost password. but now it seems no longer work on Windows 10 built. Is something I am missing or it doesn't work on win in nature?

As this discussion pertains to cracking/hacking, I would direct you to their Wiki

DonationCoder.com is not affiliated with Ophcrack and as such, the only answers you would get here is from any potential users of said tool(s).

I seem to remember reading that they changed the login mechanism, (when using a password), so that it operates in a secure environment inaccessible to the user thus the normal methods, (Ophcrack, John the Ripper, etc), wouldn't work and that you could really only reset passwords under Windows 10.

Note, this is my understanding/interpretation, quite possibly wrong, based on a half remembered article read over a year ago.

f0dder would definitely know.

In the meantime, this might be what I'm thinking of: Windows 10: Virtualization-based security

Appreciated for the input. Yes, you are correct. MS changed the policy in windows 10. Users can login with MS account.

Are you logging in with MS Account?  Or local account?

Not quite what you asked for, But... We've used this successfully on 10 for resetting passwords: Lazesoft Recover My Password (local account is assumed).

Because with MS account, you can go through the standard MS password recovery process.

Try grabbing the NTLM hashes, (Ophcrack, samdump, mimikatz, etc), and upload to NTLM Decryptor.

Is there a reason you need to recover your password rather than reset?

ie. Do you have folders/files that are OS encrypted?

No, both are fine for me. Only one drive was encrypted with bitlocker. however, it is not the system drive. I already got this fixed. the burning process failed last time and that is why I am asking for new suggestion.

Thanks
