Hi, new here, and completely new to hacking.
I am currently taking a course in Comp Net Sec. Been having isseus getting into this windows server 2k8 machine.
I am currently doing a pentest project... I can use all the resources I want, so don't worry about me cheating or anything. The professor was going to help me anyways in a few days, I just want to get this resolved ASAP (finals are around the corner, so are projects this week).
To start with the background:
-I was given 3 OS's, I am to crack all 3 passwords, and exploit all 3 vulnerabilities.
-I got an XP OS, Win server 2k3 OS, and win server 2k8 OS
-I was given a clue to start at win 2k8.
-I was also told that the wordlist for this OS was a clue, from the book BELGARIAD.
Steps I've taken:
1) Open armitage
2) run the hosts
3)run Nmap scan (for OS)
3)looked for vulnerabilities under attacks (didn't help much).
4) did a hail mary, got into the PC
5) took hash dump from meterpreter (using registry method)
6)Ran ophcrack, with all the free tables (no dice)
7)Ran Johnny, no dice.
8 ) Ran johnny with all the words from the book
9) created a wordlist, using wlm (wordlist manip) (mixing the words up)
10)Ran Johnny again, no luck.... Johnny was setup using raw-md5 for hash format.
Here are my dumps:
If anyone could help, it would be greatly appreciated!!
Please keep in mind, this is still very new to me, and i have not been taught much outside of wlm, johnny,(the basics of) armitage, and ophcrack.
I know there's other ways to get in, i just haven't been taught by the professor, so I dont know.... I've also been googling for 2 weeks now, and youtubing tutorial everywhere with no luck!
