Real-World Ethical Hacking is based on lessons taught in the National Cyber Warrior Academy, but this video course is not endorsed or sponsored by the University or by the NSA.

Please use the tools and techniques in this course responsibly and ONLY on computers you own or have express, written permission to test.
Our first hands-on, real-world ethical hacking exercise: Hacking Windows, resetting a password and creating new admin users, using a boot disk.
The attack vector for this hack will be the Windows "Sticky Keys" app SETHC.EXE, triggered any time you press the SHIFT key 5 times in Windows.
Where to get a legal copy of Windows 10 Enterprise, and how to burn your own Windows 10 install/boot disc.
Just two reboots, two special keys, and four commands to PWN any Windows PC.
Second reboot, second key combo, and final two commands to add an admin/root/super user to any Windows box from Windows XP to Windows 10.1!
Stage 3: Gaining Access! Log in as root/super/admin user and recover your files!
- Physical access is total access
- Never leave your laptop/desktop unattended
- Ethical Hacking is practical and useful!
To protect against this hack:
- Change your BIOS settings to require a password to change the boot order or boot device
- Encrypt your files to make them unreadable without your ORIGINAL password
