Reset Windows Password v11.0


A new version of the Reset Windows Password v 11.0 has been released

 Support for Windows 21H2.
 Password recovery for Indian AADHAAR and E-PAN cards. The Aadhaar card is a pdf file that contains a unique Identification Authority of Indian citizens. The e-pan card is a digital identifier issued by the Income Tax Department. This version of the program has out-of-the-box support for both PDF types. To recover an Aadhaar/e-pan card, select the tool for decrypting passwords of the recently used documents, right-click the list of found items, uncheck any other files for a faster password search and run the appropriate recovery. To decrypt the electronic PDF cards RWP automatically involves 7 different attack types that allow keeping the success rate close to 100%. Thanks, Dhiren Prajapati, for the ideas and tests.
 Syntax of the mask attack supports dictionaries now. Password recovery using the mask attack has become much easier. For example, if you know that the password you search for consists of a word along with a number at the end, you can set the following mask:
%w(English.pcd)%d(1-5)
This mask checks all words from the built-in English.pcd dictionary adding numbers from 0 to 99999 at the end of every word.
 Spanish manual and help. Thanks to José Francisco Mendoza Martínez for the job.
 Support for Windows hibernation state. If one of the program's features requests a disk write access and the program detects that the target Operating System is in a hibernating state, it displays a warning message and prompts to reset the hibernation to avoid synchronization problems.
 An enhanced algorithm for extracting user account pictures has been applied.
 Windows directory selection dialog now shows a piece of additional and helpful information (depending on working mode) about user accounts, the last logon time, the last logged on user, Windows Hello protection type, etc.
 The user selection dialog displays the last sign-in method (for local accounts).
 The user selection dialog can be used now to view Documents, Downloads, or Desktop folders of the local account.
 The backup tool got a new option to search and save memory dumps and hibernation files. Those files can be used later to extract user hashes, logon passwords, web credentials, disk encryption keys, etc.
 The backup tool can extract and save Windows Sticky notes as well as media databases.
 A new option for protecting archives with a password when creating backups of the passwords and personal data.
 The Windows Sticky notes wordlist extractor is included in AI recovery module now. The AI password recovery is used when recovering plaintext passwords for Windows accounts, document passwords, Windows PINs, Windows Syskey, passwords for virtual machines, etc.
 OS information module (included in some dialogs) now decrypts and displays instantly Windows product keys, whenever it is possible. The keys can be extracted from the local registry or from the BIOS of the target computer.
 Intelligent PIN recovery. Every time a user tries to decrypt Windows PIN, the program analyses all found PINs and, if some weak ones are found, offers an intelligent recovery. First, the guaranteed recovery for the PINs that can be found in the fastest possible way is launched, then go time-consumptive ones, and at last, those that can be recovered applying a lookup for frequently used combinations only. A user is free to switch between the intelligent and a common recovery, however.
 The built-in English dictionary was updated with some commonly used and popular passwords.
 The last logged-on user is highlighted wherever it's possible now.
 Users can launch the secret questions and answers dialog directly. Previous versions of the program did it automatically.
 Updates for French, Hindi, Italian, Russian and Spanish interfaces. Thank you all, guys, for keeping it up-to-day.
 The program's smart logic has been improved. For example, once started, the Reset Windows Password searches for memory dumps, BitLocker protected drives, virtual machines, etc. and, if one of the items is found, offers to back up the memory dumps, unprotect the BitLocker drives or mount the virtual machine.
Another example is smart password recovery. Instead of brute-forcing passwords recklessly, RWP has a totally different approach. When it is not possible to decrypt a hash instantly, the program tries to collect as many passwords and words out of the target system as possible. All kinds of potential passwords are extracted including local and network credentials, e-mail correspondence and attachments, browser search history, Windows Sticky Notes, recently used files, and so on. Once collected those words are used to create a list of password candidates based on numerous rules of social engineering.
The third example of smart behavior is the recovery/reset process itself. Before applying any critical operation, like resetting a password, the program figures out if the appropriate plaintext password can be extracted instead by applying any known method or a backdoor. For example, extracting passwords from LSA secrets or autologon information, analyzing passwords hints and secret questions, using biometric databases and TBAL secrets, decrypting network credentials, and so on.
 OS information module displays a bit more correct data about Windows version and build number.
 Some interface improvements.
 A little bit more proper Microsoft Edge and Opera detection when recovering browser passwords.
 Security issue.
 Item reusing fix. It caused a speed degradation when recovering passwords of encrypted documents, domain cached credentials, and virtual disks.
 A problem decrypting Internet Explorer 7-9 autoform data was fixed.
 An error searching for folders with recently-used files. It occurred on international versions of Windows only.
 Files larger than 4.3 GB were processing incorrectly in password backup and image creation tools.
 Json parser bug. The problem caused the program to fail unexpectedly sometimes.
 Microsoft Edge browser passwords were not decrypting properly in certain cases. The program skipped some vital items when backing up Edge files.
 PIN recovery using custom attacks worked incorrectly in certain cases.
