Yes and no. It depends on the OS, The PW you are trying to "break" and the tools you're using. It's not easy, can take weeks or more, and still fail.

 

What exactly is your issue? Is this for a Win7 PW or an application PW like WinZip?

Please be more specific about your issue. It's important that we have as many details as possible.

If this is your pass word for a computer there is a forum rule which is relevant to this topic.

 

 

 

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.

There are many reasons why this could be required....which is why ask before proceeding to provide any useful information. I've had need myself in the past, both for work and for personal reasons. So IS this question breaking a rule, always, or just under certain circumstances?

In this topic a request has been made for information regarding cracking a password, this certainly falls under the description of defeating an existing security measure.

 

What I'm about to post does not reflect on dinumidun in any way.

 

There are times when members will request help because they have either forgotten their password or acquired a computer with an unknown password and honestly ask for help.  But how do we determine whether this person falls into that category of not?

 

Since a person can do a Google search and readily find information for cracking a password I have reservations about this rule applying to this situation.  But I do not set policy here, and will always abide with the policies which are in effect.

 

I'll see if I can get a Moderator to provide a more definitive answer to your question.

The way the question is posed we can answer it, yes or no. To further the discussion in the operation and performance of such a task we cannot do. This goes against the forum rules.

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.


Properly framed requests for assistance with gaining access to devices can and will and have been be allowed on a case by case basis. Generic how do I crack my (fill in the blank's) computer/router/phone will not be honored.

Cool. So we can confirm if it's possible, but can't elaborate on the how no matter the why.
