John the Ripper alternatives

  • Offline NT Password & Registry Editor

  • Windows stores its user information, including crypted versions of the passwords, in a file called 'sam', usually found in \windows\system32\config. This file is a part of the registry, in a binary format previously undocumented, and not easily accessible. But thanks to a German(?) named B.D, I've now made a program that understands the registry.This site provides CD and floppy images for end users to easily edit their forgotten passwords. But it also provides full source code and binary builds of the tools to allow others to use as they like for other purposes. Registry format documentation also available. »

  • CrowbarDMG

  • crowbarDMG is a dictionary attack tool for DMG and Spareimage files for Macs. It does require 10.5 Leopard. It really wasn’t worth the trouble to redo things to work on Tiger. It is completely free, so enjoy. Be sure to read the included PDF readme file. I address an issue if you use strings to pull out a dictionary from a disc image. Some control characters need to be scrubbed else it will crash crowbarDMG. Give it a shot if you need to recover a password for a dmg or filevault file.
