Why would a tier 1 IT Support need a password cracker?

Aren't the knowledge and experience in using such tools be a pre-requisite in IT support?

Nope, they aren't. I'm a tier 2 technical support and we don't use password crackers. Usually, you have access to the AD to reset the passwords if needed, or have a master password.

An IT Company that works with windows systems should have Microsoft DART one of the tools included is Locksmith that can change the passwords for local accounts.


• Please do not PM me asking for support. Post on the forums instead it will increases the chances of getting help for your problem by one of us.

Anyhow, we aren't allowed to discuss such tools/programs here, so that conversation ends here unfortunately.

See this post by hamluis, one of BC's moderators. For anything else Google is a good place to start.

Topic closed...sufficient explanation already posted in topic by other members, IMO.

 

If you have any reasonable questions about this closure, please convey such to me via PM.
