Why would i receive a segmentation fault while running chntpw?
I'm helping someone remote reset their windows password.
O/S backtrack3 live cd
location of sam file - /mnt/sda/sda1/windows/syst
location of chntpw - /pentest/password/chntpw/c
They keep receiving a "segmentation fault" error while running chntpw
Any ideas? i told them to reboot twice cleanly, then shut down and boot backtrack3 and try again... still waiting to hear back
What they have done.
1. booted in to backtrack3
# cd /mnt/sda/sda1/windows/system32/config
# /pentest/password/chntpw/chntpw -u Administrator SAM
# /pentest/password/chntpw/chntpw -i
