usually passwords are saved

using reverse encryption. That is if the administrator was smart.

so even if you get into the folder where they are stored, they are encrypted.

Why do you think? Look at who he is and where he's located

It must be the 10th or so posting about password hacking or cracking from "systems administrators" or "applications developers" from his part of the world within the past few weeks since I have been a member of TR. Coincidence? I highly doubt it! Do they not have laws against this in their country, or is it that their lame excuse for a gov't could care less about enforcing laws pertaining to piracy and the theft of intellectual property? I'm just annoyed already and such posting by them are doing a great job of creating a not so ethical image of their country and their idea of how IT should be least in my opinion. I tend not to judge people and will give them the benefit of the doubt, but I've seen nothing other than the same old password cracking postings and jibberish coming from their part of the world and that's enough to convince me that IT to them must be practiced in the most unethical and dirties way possible. I have yet to see anyone of these posters provide a legitimate reason after we question their motives. They usually just stay silent after we call their bluff.

Speaking of calling someone's bluff...

You are Big Ole Jack, Why Me Worry (in all his annoying incarnations), and who knows who else. I know it. I can prove it. Quit with the "I just got here" crap.

I maintain a policy of "new identity, new chance to behave" but you are ON MY NERVES with your repetitive posting about people from xy and z countries being unethical, etc. Get a new topic of conversation, a new drum to beat. We all know how you feel. Get over it or get out.

I would never have known!

The same guy who has been up all our a$$e$ with how ethical he is is really the same clown that has been banned twice (at least) before??? Hmm. Them's some interesting ethics!

Gee, big guy. You have actually managed to tick off one of the most even tempered people I know. Good job. I suggest to you strongly that you heed her warning and not push it.

Hey Beth- I have a shovel that I borrowed from Mae. Let me know if you need it.

Now be nice Mycroft. It doesn't hurt to answer this question at all

You can find the Passwords and the rest of the requested information on the Domain Controller.

That is of course if things are properly configured and there isn't something running from a Backup Domain Controller somewhere.

See it wasn't that hard was it.

They are post-it notes under the users keyboard...sometimes on the wall and sometimes right on the monitor.

That has always been my pet peeve! I walk up to a user's desk and fairly neatly tacked to the side of their monitor is a nice list of the system name, user id, and password for everything they need.

I love reminding them that they signed a piece of paper that consented to our electronic security policy which includes termination for making their passwords available to other users, including administrators.

I mean, do you keep your ATM PIN on a sticky note on your debit card?

Actually, some morons do and guess what happens if they lose their wallet

by ManiacMan In reply to Sweeeeet!

or they're pickpocketed? Their bank accounts are cleaned out and the thief goes on a nice shopping spree. To make matters worse, the bank can't do anything because it was a valid transaction initiated with the proper PIN according to their records.
