I see a lot of documentation out there blaming PtH on Windows operating systems to the unsalted nature of LM/NT hashes.
Isn't this conjecture wrong? Introducing salting (if the salt is deterministic / e.g. username + domain + password) would only minimize the issue of offline password cracking and not solve the issue of PtH.
Am I right in this thinking? Why are all these companies and people saying the problem is rooted due to the unsalted nature of the hash?
