e-business technology’s Pwdump3 Now Available

Pwdump3, a free utility allowing network administrators to retrieve password hash files from remote systems including Windows NT 4.0 and 2000 systems, is now available on e-business technology Inc.’s Web site.

Pwdump3 enhances the existing Pwdump and Pwdump2. The first version allowed users with administrator privileges to extract password hashes from remote NT systems, but not if syskey was enabled. The second version worked whether or not syskey was enabled, but only on the local machine. Pwdump3 works across the network and whether or not syskey is enabled. Combined with L0phtCrack, administrators can use Pwdump3 to evaluate the strength of passwords and whether individual users are following network policies.

A key enhancement of Pwdump3 is that it now allows administrators to retrieve hashes from a remote NT system.
