The goal of system hacking is to gain access, escalate privileges, execute applications, and hide files.


The objective of this lab is to help students learn to monitor a system remotely and to extract hidden files and to complete other tasks that include:
Learn to monitor a system remotely
  • Extracting administrative passwords
  • Hiding files and extracting hidden files
  • Recovering passwords
  • Monitoring a system remotely


Password hacking is one of the easiest and most common ways hackers obtain unauthorized computer or network access. Although strong passwords that are difficult to crack (or guess) are easy to create and maintain, users often fail to take advantage of this. Therefore, passwords are one of the weakest links in the information-security chain. Passwords rely on secrecy for their security. After a password is compromised, its original owner isn'™t the only person who can access the system with it. As you'll learn, hackers have many ways to obtain passwords. Hackers can obtain passwords from local computers by using password-cracking software. To obtain passwords from across a network, hackers can use remote cracking utilities or network analyzers. This chapter demonstrates just how easily hackers can gather password information from your network and describes password vulnerabilities that exit in computer networks and countermeasures to help prevent these vulnerabilities from being exploited on your systems.
