Ok, here's the problem. Me, and numorous others with studies in Network Security, Forensics, and Windows NT OSes at a local community college, have been given a challenge. We were given a Windows 2000 Box with DeepFreeze Pro installed and must crack both DeepFreeze and the Windows 2000 passwords. I got access to the SAM file by using a bootable distribution of linux. The only problem i noticed is that it seems like they added a level of encryption which made it impossible to crack using LC4. As for DeepFreeze, we've found no way around this at all. We found out that u can't find any kind of key generator cuz each install has it's own unique HASH keys. The only real way we were able to remove it was by fdisk and format. But we need to crack and preserve the system so it shows no signs of tampering. Any help would be greatly appreciated. DeepFreeze has been our toughist challenge.
