    I was asked by a customer to crack his friends wifes password. He suspects her of cheating. Do I want to get into the middle of this? What are the legal ramifications?

    I've done it before for parents whose kids locked them out but this is different.

    Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving.

      NO, YOU DO NOT.

      Trust me on that one.


      However, providing information in the form of a single link is a no-brainer.

      For Windows systems it allows to enter any password protected profile without any knowledge of the password.


      Bypassing a windows password is very simple and requires very little knowledge of any kind.
      A simple google search will give him all the information he needs to do this himself.

      Kon-Boot is the best software solution I have ever seen. It is amazing and simply requires a few kilobytes on a floppy disk.

        I just got back from that customer. I fixed one pc but told him I wasn't comfortable with the whole password scenario.

        Now I see your warning in a large font which leads to to believe I did the right thing by backing away. I did tell him to google ophcrack. I'll check out kon-boot.

        Thanks for taking the time to reply.
