    Passwords > 14?

    Are passwords greater than 14 characters in NTLM security possible to crack with the help of PWDUMP2, CainAndAbel, LC5 or stuff like that?

    Three of them are not able to import proper password hashes. *Remember* I have the administrator rights.

    IIRC the length of the password was simply no factor above 14 characters in NTLM because it would get split into 7 char sequences, and the attack had to be performed only on those.

    The way I'd go about it is use pwdump to dump [] the password from the SAM hive then use JtR to test it, or if you are so able follow NeuTron's tutorial on clustering computers for this purpose.

    An admin can still test the security of the passwords for his own account and those of other users, be it a single machine.
