I'm pentesting for a class in Kali Linux, cracking a Windows 7 password. I mounted the windows' hard drive in Kali, ran PWDUMP7 and got the hashes saved on the desktop. It's only showing some of the users, but not any that I created for testing...that's another issue by itself. The default system admin 'IEUser' should at least work, right?
I isolated that hash into a single line .txt: IEUser:1000:aad3b435b51404eeaad3b435b51404ee:8846f7eaee8fb117ad06bdd830b7586c:::
When I run JtR in Wordlist mode, it cracks the password easily off the word list ('1234'). When I run it in Brute force mode using the following:
cd /usr/share/john john ~/Desktop/samhash.txt -format=nt -user=IEUser
The result is:
Using default input encoding: UTF-8 Rules/masks using ISO-8859-1 Loaded 1 password hash (NT [MD4 128/128 AVX 4x3]) Press 'q' or Ctrl-C to abort, almost any other key for status password (IEUser) 1g 0:00:00:00 DONE 2/3 (2018-01-31 09:47) 16.66g/s 15033p/s 15033c/s 15033C/s 123456..qwerty Use the "--show" option to display all of the cracked passwords reliably Session completed
It appears to not even run, and using "Show" even says that it wasn't cracked. I have absolutely no idea what's going on with this, and nobody else seems to have this problem that I can see...What am I missing?
Edit: It was working correctly, "password" was the password, I just didn't understand the UI.
