Chapter 3: How to Break into any Windows Computer from the Console

No computer is safe if you have physical access to it. We show how to create and use a simple customized DOS boot disk to harvest Windows 95/98 passwords from the console within seconds, without even having to log in.

Nowadays most readers have access to a Local Area Network (LAN), whether at work, school, or over a cable or DSL modem.

The chapter concludes with tips on how to protect your computer while on a cable modem or DSL connection.
