This instructable will (hopefully) teach you how to hack with NetBIOS. You can also learn how to protect your computer from this attack with this. This is a good one to try if you are wardriving.

Things you'll need:
- A computer
- winfingerprint
- telnet

Step 1: Time To Hack

First, open up Winfingerprint.
would it be illegal to take the computer's files?
Generally speaking, doing anything on a system/network that you don't have permission to do is illegal. I'm not a lawyer, but I would think it'd be illegal to do so.
when I try to download Winfingerprint my computer says that there is nothing in the file (my computer say that downloaded compressed folders are empty. HELP!!!)
I only get stuff like printers that are conected to my computer after it says done at botom <br>
whats telnet <br> <br>
So.... you have to be administrator? Wouldn't that make it not hacking?
it would still be hacking, because your on some else's network (ie wardriving, being in a hacked network) etc...<br />
I realise this is late; but what I meant is you'd have to already be an administrator on their network to do anything.
&nbsp;good tut but plz help me i have my computer and it asked for my username and password my laptops vista home i think and comp is win7 home now i dont know what it means by this i dont have a windows password or user and they are BOTH on the same network thanks in advance if you help<br /> <br /> Death<br />
&nbsp;Which computer were you trying to get access to? When you turn on the computer that you attempt to access, does it display something like 'Welcome Admin'? The default user is probably something like administrator and the password will be blank if you usually don't use one to get on the computer.
Hey, isn't is illegal to do this ???
no if they have no passwords or are on a open net you are free to go in
so your saying that if you leave your front door open, ppl are free to come in your house and take your computer or tv? Smart.
there is a BIG diference there
Ok il reword myself. YOu have the right to connect yourself in your sister computer without her knowing you did, and see her naked. 2x smart?
well if you like that kinda stuff
I give up. You won. Let say it's legal even if it is not.
im just saying that if a network<sup>wifi</sup> is open<sup>no passwords</sup> then you can go in<br/>
Actually, that is still technically true.&nbsp; It has been attempted a few times in congress to create a law that makes connecting to an open wifi network illegal, but it has failed every time.<br /><br />So, yes, connecting to an open wifi network is still legal.&nbsp; I see your point here...<br />
when i do all this it just winfingerprint just outputs:<br/>Done.<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://winfingerprint.sourceforge.net">http://winfingerprint.sourceforge.net</a><br/>mailto:vacuum@users.sourceforge.net<br/><br/>what do I do?<br/>
What is telnet what version do i need and where can i download it ?
if you have windows you should have telnet
vista dose not have telnet
Yes it does. Go to the control panel and it should be under Programs, Programs and Features, and its Turn Windows Features On and Off. Check the Telnet client, not the telnet server.
Hey is this winfingerprint full of viruses?. . .
No. Not as far as I know. Just don't get it from some warez site, and you'll be fine.
ok cool, thanks man
I got a system error 53, Network path not found.. ..
This only works if you are on the same network. I.E., wardriving.
You mean like a Wireless network? The person who I am trying to get is on the same network. I did this for my router too, got up to this part and got the same error.
Are you sure you are typing in the right IP, or are even on the same network? That is what error 53 usually means.
wardriving or do you mean war<em>dialing</em><br/>
Ah the joys of M$ Networking...
OK now one of you geniuses tell us how to keep these hacks OUT of the PC
you just have to disallow sharing your sensitive info...
Ok when i open winfingerprint, i dont get as much in the general options, and when i scan with all the boxes checked it just says: error 53 WNetOpenEnum Error 53: The network path was not found. Please help me? thanks
How exactly is this cracking? You used standard hidden shares available on any PC running file sharing. $admin $c etc...
I never actually said this was cracking, I named it hacking because that is what people will search for.
anyone please explain me what is the use of this stuff
Early one morning i turned on my laptop ,it told me user password had failed and hung on that . I had net entered the desktop password yet , so windows would not boot this might be one way to get around that .Letting you save music and photos have not backed up latly.I took the easy route fed it the XP cd and wiped it clean (no ASR didnt work )
Hey i am unable to get through this process...<br/><br/>C:\Users\@@@@&gt;net use * \$$$$-PCS\ADMIN$<br/>System error 67 has occurred.<br/><br/>The network name cannot be found.<br/><br/>I tried ither same error what is the problem. Help please and i can only see my netbios shares of my computers only! and what you msn for better chat experience<br/><br/>Thanks<br/>
No respectable hacker goes wardriving with Windows running on their laptop! The SaMBa tools such as smbclient, findsmb, nmblookup, etc. are all superior this windows tool, but might require a bit more reading of man pages to figure them out. For example, smbclient -L // would list all given shares that the host has, including the hidden ones. Besides, this article would only really help you hack yourself, would it not? Connecting to another hosts administrative share is always going to prompt for proper credentials.
Just a thought: what about cain and able? I don't think that is for linux or unix, or is it?
C&amp;A has a lot of purposes, most if not all of which are matchable with open source tools. I think most people use it for ARP poisoning. If you fancy ARP poisoning, then your tool of choice should be <a rel="nofollow" href="http://ettercap.sourceforge.net/">Ettercap</a> (which is Linux friendly).<br/><br/>For basic NetBIOS exploration, the smbtool collection is unmatched. Even plain old <a rel="nofollow" href="http://learnlinux.tsf.org.za/courses/build/net-admin/ch08s02.html">smbclient</a> can get you pretty far.<br/>
No respectable hacker? The majority of computer security threats come from idiots running windows that think they are hackers, a.k.a. script kiddies. Your always at risk, no matter what. Good point on windows though.
I would just like to state that the term ``Hacking`` is a media and hollywood defined word. Turning your xbox360 into a waffle iron is hacking. Taking an object and making it do something other than its intended purpose is hacking, this is cracking I am being preachy, someone whittle my statement.
I know what hacking means, it's just that everyone searches for things like "how to hack", so I name it like that. But I do agree that the media and hollywood defined word. This is cracking, which is kinda like hacking but a lot more malicious and illegal.
Realmsman, please don't type in all caps. You aren't doing anything wrong. It's just that some computers have the password enabled, some have it disabled. So, you'll either have to password guess or get a brute force program.
