So I did the ultimate silly thing: I lost my domain admin password for my Server 2008 R2 box.
Sure, I could just re-install but that's going to be a huge pain. I tried rebooting with the Windows Install DVD and replacing
cmd.exe, but switching to
C: displayed no files.
I can still log into the machine as a regular user, though.
And I see there's been some local privilege escalation vulnerabilities patched in the last couple months (specifically MS13-046 looks promising). And it's been a little while since I've logged in to apply MSFT patches (which oddly enough was what I was trying to log in to do).
Are there any publicly available exploits for these bugs? I don't see any in Metasploit. Or is there just a better way altogether? I full physical access to the machine, but I think BitLocker is enabled (which is why I think replacing utilman.exe failed).
