Dimenticata la password di root? no problems: un reboot e via con … kon-boot! Non Ã¨ certo perfetto ma Ã¨ di sicuro effetto 🙂
Kon-Boot is an prototype piece of software which allows to change contents of a linux kernel (and now Windows kernel also!!!) on the fly (while booting). In the current compilation state it allows to log into a linux system as ‘root’ userÂ without typing the correct password or toelevate privileges fromÂ current user to root. ForÂ Windows systems it allows to enter any password protected profileÂ without any knowledge of the password. It was acctually started as silly project of mine, which was born from my never-ending memory problems 🙂 Secondly it was mainly created for Ubuntu, later i have made few add-ons to cover some other linux distributions. Finally, please consider this is my first linux project so far 🙂 EntireÂ Kon-Boot was written in pure x86 assembly, using old grandpa-geezer TASM 4.0.
