A password security test tool that's designed to allow Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows XP-based systems administrators to identify and close security holes in their networks. Proactive Windows Security Explorer helps secure networks by executing an audit of account passwords, and exposing insecure account passwords. If it is possible to recover the password within a reasonable time, the password is considered insecure. The software supports a few different methods of obtaining password hashes for further attack/audit: from dump files (generated by 3rd party tools like pwdump/pwdump2/pwdump3), Registry of local computer, binary Registry files (SAM and SYSTEM), memory of local computer, and memory of remote computers (Domain Controllers), including ones running Active Directory. It can use brute-force and dictionary attacks on LM and NTLM password hashes, effectively optimized for speed.
This program is used to recover (decrypt) files encrypted on NTFS (EFS) partitions created in Windows 2000/XP. Files can even be decrypted in a case where the system is not bootable and you are unable to log on, and/or some encryption keys (private or master) have been tampered with. Decryption is also possible when Windows is protected using SYSKEY. AEFSDR can decrypt the files protected under Windows XP and all versions of Windows 2000.
