    1. Hi Will!

      Yeah, I kinda mentioned those facts. 🙂

      First you need to be able to enable the system level command prompt from the login screen.”

      If no-one has logged onto the system yet, there are no passwords in memory for Mimikatz to pull.

      Thanks for the input!


    1. Yeah, it didn’t, I was actually kind of surprised about that. I thought Mimikatz would trigger the built in MS AV. And the machine that I originally downloaded Mimikatz on didn’t trigger either.

      Or should I say, didn’t trigger yet, wait a week, lol. 🙂

      Thanx again for the comment Will!
