sablefoxx Posted May 5, 2008 Share Posted May 5, 2008 Okay so my school has a large computer lab, all the computers are running XP, and are secured with Deep Freeze. However i just found a computer that has Fedora 5 (but default boots to XP) installed on it :P . Not sure who installed it or how long its been on the computer. The problem is i do not know the login for the linux account. I can boot from any device i please, is there any sort of linux live CD that will let me overwrite the password file to do my bidding? Giving me access the the fedora OS? Doing this in windows is easy but i am not aware of any program/Live CD that is able to overwrite the file in linux (and im pretty extracting and cracking the hashes would take a LOT longer). Any other ideas as to obtain access to the fedora account? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
