Elcomsoft has a neat – and relatively new – tool called Advanced SQL Password Recovery I thought you may be able to benefit from. It can be used to change any SQL Server databases protected by a password included SQL Server 2000, 2005 and 2008. All you need is access to the master.mdf file. SQL Server optional.
I was going to show a screenshot but there’s not that much to show…you load the program, you point it to the master.mdf file and it’ll crack the passwords – simple as that. Very cool.
Yet another reason to keep your Windows systems patched and your share/file permissions in check.
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
