chntpw - for Linux allows you to access user passwords in Windows NT / 2000


This program is very outdated because there are probably almost no Windows2000 users left, or rather it should not be.

This small program provides a way to view information and modify user loads in a Windows NT / 2000 user database file.

Old passwords need not be known because they are overwritten.

In addition, it also contains a simple registry editor (same size data printer) and a hex editor that lets you flip around with bits and replace the file as you like.

If you want GNU / Linux boot disks for offline password reset, you can add this tool to custom image discs or use those found on the tool's website.

Version: 1.0.1-B

How to install via a terminal window:

sudo apt-get install chntpw
