Ophcrack LiveCD 3.5.0
The ophcrack LiveCD is a bootable Linux CD-ROM containing ophcrack 3.5.0
and a set of tables (XP free small or vista proba free depending on the version
you downloaded). It allows for testing the strength of passwords on a
Windows machine without having to install anything on it. Just put it into
the CD-ROM drive, reboot and it will try to find a Windows partition,
extract its SAM and start auditing.
You can download the ISO image from SourceForge mirrors.
The tables are located in directory tables. Please feel free
to install ophcrack and copy the tables on your harddisk if you want to
use ophcrack outside of the LiveCD.

Slitaz is modified for Ophrack, so you can expect some minor issues
when playing with it. If youre interested in Slitaz, download the latest
stable version on their website.
