Active Password Changer V8.0. _VERIFIED_ Crack [2019]

A common issue faced by people who want to learn password cracking is finding target hashes to use. When our clients want to start auditing passwords, it can be difficult to get buy-in from leadership to start downloading user passwords from domain controllers for educational purposes. For this exercise, we leaned on the excellent work of Troy Hunt and his Pwned Passwords database: "Pwned Passwords are 517,238,891 real world passwords previously exposed in data breaches."

Active Password Changer v8.0. Crack [2019]

Five hundred million passwords is a little excessive for getting started with password cracking, so we broke the file into chunks of 20,000 lines. This is a realistic size for an Active Directory database.

This creates several thousand files preprended with "hashes-". hashes-aa is the top 20,000 (or the worst 20,000) passwords in the database. These are likely to be cracked with little trouble, which will be helpful as you start working with john, as it will allow you to see the success of the various cracking modes. We chose to keep hashes-aa and hashes-zzamhr (the last file, or most unique passwords in the database) and deleted all the others to limit clutter.

A couple of notes on the john command line above. We manually specified the hash type with "--format=NT", and we then used a POT file specific to this session with "--pot=./pwned.pot". The POT file is where john stores passwords that it has already cracked for display with the "--show" command. The "--fork=4" directive tells john to split the work over four CPU cores, and of course "--incremental" specifies the cracking mode.

Incremental mode will run forever, or until every password is cracked. You could compare this mode to making popcorn. When the passwords stop scrolling, and there start to be pauses between the pops, then you hit Control-c to exit john. You can then use the "--show" directive to view the results.

The number of passwords cracked will depend on the hardware you use and the time you let it run. In preparing this guide, we let the incremental run a little over an hour before the pops slowed down to a few per minute. The results were in line with our expectations for the 20,000 worst passwords on the Internet.

The final mode we wanted to use in this session is based on Markov chains. Markov mode uses statistical analysis of similarities between passwords that have already been cracked to guide password guesses for the remaining hashes. This is most useful in organizations where statistical similarities are most relevant, as users may be getting the same tips from the help desk on how to formulate strong passwords, for example. However, passwords tend to be similar across organizations, and this cracking mode should still generate some results from our 20,000 worst passwords list.

The higher the Markov level and the longer the length, the longer this crack will run. In cases where we are onsite and trying to recover passwords quickly, we usually start at a level of 225 or 250 and hope for a quick win. If time isn't a factor and you are aiming for the highest percentage of passwords, then higher levels will get more.

As you can see here, Markov mode reveals some 10- and 11-character passwords that would not be readily available to wordlist+rules cracking. We have been in situations where passwords found via Markov mode were able to be plugged back in via wordlist+rules and still recovered more passwords. In general, password cracking is a highly iterative process where you build on successful cracks to get more and more passwords.

Over the course of a couple of days, we cracked 19,628 of the top 20,000 most prevalent passwords on the pwned passwords list. Using that same methodology, we cracked 7,211 of the last 18,891. If you are a systems administrator or corporate IT security looking to weed out weak passwords, this methodology should get you started on the right path. If you are new to penetration testing or just looking to add password cracking to your existing toolkit, this should get you comfortable working with password hashes and the iterative process of recovering passwords.

But no matter who you are, you may become addicted to password cracking as you try to get more and more passwords. This obsession will undoubtedly lead you to GPU cracking and hashcat, but that is a post for another day.

Before you start cracking, we want to leave you with a couple of precautions. During this exercise, we used publicly-disclosed breach data for password recovery and password hashes that were not associated with any user or site, so we did not concern ourselves with securing the hashes. If you are retrieving and auditing live passwords for a real organization, you should always take care to secure the data files. Also, make sure that you have permission to audit passwords before pulling live hashes into your own environment. There are many different methods for accessing passwords in Active Directory environments, but that too is a post for another day.

if i do the same process as you mentioned above for hiding and locking the formula with password, it doesn't work when i copy the file in another version of Excel. for example when i create a file in excell 2016 and copy the file in excel 2007 it cracked all password itself. What is the possible solution for this problem ? Please suggest me.
