I'm new to LM Hashing and Windows authentication, and I'm having problems with LM hashes.

I've created 2 accounts with the password "123", and both of them have different hashes, and none of the hashes match any online LM Calculator.



These are the hashes I've got from pwdump7, same passwords, different hashes. Are the hashes salted or anything like that?

  • The LM hashing algorithm relies on the OEM code page of the system (see step 3 at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LAN_Manager#LM_hash_details). Were both these accounts created on the same windows installation, and were the language settings the same for both? – Johnny Apr 13 at 18:04
  • Ive created both of the accounts at the same day, in my local computer, without changing the language. And thats what I dont understand, why differente hashes? lol – Thiago Apr 13 at 18:14
  • I'm not familiar with this problem, but here's some discussion about hashes being stored differently after an update to Windows 10: github.com/Neohapsis/creddump7/issues/2 – PwdRsch Apr 13 at 20:03
