Discover the Widnows Credential Editor and how to recover Windows hashes.
- Kali comes with a useful utility for collecting hashes…from a Windows system.…This is the Windows Credential Editor,…or WCE tool,…located in the user shared WCE directory.…Let's open a Terminal window and take a look.…We can see there's wce executables.…One for 32 bit Windows systems,…one for 64 bit Windows systems,…and one which will autodetect and work on either.…These will often be used once a tester has gained…remote access to a system by uploading wce…to the target machine.…
I've switched to my Windows XP system…to demonstrate how we use WCE.…I'll open a command prompt and navigate…to the wce directory, where I downloaded…and stored the universal wce executable.…I'll now type wce-l to list the hashes of system users.…Here we see we have two users.…IEUser and IE6WINXP$.…WCE has extracted and displays the NTLM hashes.…
The NTLM hashes are displayed in four parts:…the username, the domain name,…the landman hash, and the nthash.…The first entry that WCE displays is for…user, IEUser in domain IE6WINXP.…The LM hash starts with AAD3…
This course will give prospective ethical hackers a short overview of the tools in Kali Linux. Cybersecurity expert Malcolm Shore shows how to set up a virtual environment for testing, configure Kali Linux, and install toolsets for information gathering, vulnerability assessment, password and hash cracking, and target exploitation.
Because businesses are connected, they are also exposed. Vulnerability testing helps organizations limit that exposure. This course will help you explore the careers, techniques, and tools behind ethical hacking—one of the most competitive and sought-after IT security skills.
