Cool tool for cracking/resetting SQL Server passwords

Elcomsoft has a neat - and relatively new - tool called Advanced SQL Password Recovery I thought you may be able to benefit from. It can be used to change any SQL Server databases protected by a password included SQL Server 2000, 2005 and 2008. All you need is access to the master.mdf file. SQL Server optional.

I was going to show a screenshot but there's not that much to show...you load the program, you point it to the master.mdf file and it'll crack the passwords - simple as that. Very cool.

Yet another reason to keep your Windows systems patched and your share/file permissions in check.
