Hack Attack: Get the system account


At school? At the Library? At..work?

Locked? Blocked? Nothing to do but internet?

Wish you could just get the admin account, but don’t have the password/or are a N00B?
Say hellooooo to the System account!

What is the system account?

The system account and the administrator account (Administrators group) have the same file privileges, but they have different functions. The system account is used by the operating system and by services that run under Windows. There are many services and processes within Windows that need the capability to log on internally (for example during a Windows installation). The system account was designed for that purpose; it is an internal account, does not show up in User Manager, cannot be added to any groups, and cannot have user rights assigned to it. On the other hand, the system account does show up on an NTFS volume in File Manager in the Permissions portion of the Security menu. By default, the system account is granted full control to all files on an NTFS volume. Here the system account has the same functional privileges as the administrator account.

If you’re too lazy to read it. Basically what it does is give programs admin rights. The cool thing about this, is that WE can get this account with a few simple steps.

FYI. YES I KNOW THERE ARE ALREADY TUTORIALS ON THIS SUBJECT.

BUT

How many come with picturreeeessssssss!!!???

Yeah. That’s what I thought.

Ok, so go to Start>Run and type in “cmd”

OR

Go to Windows Key + R and type “cmd”

OR

Go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt

OR

Go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>Notepad

and type this:

START CMD.COM

Save it as “youcantstopmeadmin.bat”

If none of this worked. You’re screwed.

For everyone else:

Type in:

at **:** /interactive “cmd.exe”

*
The asterisk means the time. Type in the time one minute in the future. It has to be in 24 hour format.

SO. If it’s 3:45 PM for you. You type in

at 15:46 /interactive “cmd.exe”

So you wait a minute…

then SVCHOST.EXE pops up…

HOLY CRAP!

IS THAT SVCHOST.EXE!!!??

Why. Yes it is!

Before you do anything stupid however, hit Ctrl+Shift+Esc.

go to processes, and end “Explorer.exe”

then type into SVCHOST.EXE  “explorer.exe”

BINGO!
