Issue


Can a user change his password using a notepad?

Solution

  • Open up Notepad
  • Type in:

Code:
command.com
  • Go to File->Save As->CMD.bat

Save as All Files to Desktop
  • Open CMD on your desktop
  • Type in:

Code:
net user
and hit enter
  • Choose a user to change their pass
  • Now type in:

Code:
net user <user name> *
and hit enter
  • It will now ask for the new pass so enter one
  • Then it asks for you to re-type it so re-type it

It doesn't show what you are typing but it is still there!
Example:
net user Lilazndude *
