Hack Linux and Windows 7 Passwords using KON BOOT

Tired of trying breaking into that Linux box which pesks you with its password screen ? Well,your day is saved when  Kon Boot comes to rescue . Apart from the stupid logo,Kon-Boot is an fantastic prototype software which can change contents of a Linux kernel and Windows kernel while booting.It will you to log into a Linux system as “root” user without even typing the correct password or to elevate privileges from current user to root. For Windows systems it allows to enter any password protected profile without any knowledge of the password.Entire Kon-Boot was written in pure x86 assembly in TASM 4.0.

Yeah..you read it right..it works !

Kon boot was mainly created for Ubuntu,but now it supports more Linux distributions. Kon Boot can crack an array of Windows and Linux operating systems ranging from Windows XP to even Windows 7,which makes it one of the first tools to break Windows 7 passwords.On the Linux from it supports Gentoo,Ubuntu,Debian and Fedora flavors.

Here is how you can Hack Linux Passwords using Kon-Boot-

  1. Boot with Kon-boot CD or Floppy
  2. When Linux is fully booted go to the console mode
  3. Type 'kon-usr' as login, if it works you should be now in the system
  4. Remember to restore the system when you are leaving, you can do this by typing 'kon-fix' as login again.

Here is a Sample Console output of what it will look like -

Ubuntu 8.04 torpeda tty1
torpeda login: kon-usr
# id
uid=0(root) gid=0(root)
# whoami
