Windows XP password file format


Recommended Posts


I've dump hash on my XP VM and here is the output:


In Linux it is like on /etc/passwd with 7 fields:

Username:Password:User ID :Group ID:User ID Info:Home directory:Command/shell

Here we also have 7 fileds, but it like:

Username:User ID :HASH:HASH:::

Do you know what are the two hashes ?

I've been succeeding in cracking this hash:e52cac67419a9a224a3b108f3fa6cb6d  -> PASSWORD, so it may be the users's password

However, I don't succeed in this hash 8846f7eaee8fb117ad06bdd830b7586c.... so I don't what it should used for..

You think the 2nd is the salt ?

I don't supposed so because I am on Windows XP system
