How to Crack the Activity Wizard Password in Cisco Packet Tracer
Cisco Packet Tracer is a network simulation and visualization tool that allows users to create, configure, and troubleshoot network scenarios. It also has an Activity Wizard feature that enables users to create and edit interactive learning activities. However, some activity files may be password-protected by the author, which prevents users from accessing or modifying them. In this article, we will show you how to crack the Activity Wizard password in Cisco Packet Tracer using a tool called PacketTracerRecovery.
What is PacketTracerRecovery?
PacketTracerRecovery is a tool that can perform password recovery on any given .pka file (the file format for Packet Tracer activities). It works by hooking the password function inside Packet Tracer 7 and replacing the original hash with a known one. After that, the user can enter a default password ("Ferib") to access the Activity Wizard and change the password to whatever they like. The tool was created by a GitHub user named ferib and can be downloaded from [here].
How to Use PacketTracerRecovery?
To use PacketTracerRecovery, you need to have Packet Tracer 7 installed on your computer. You also need to have the .pka file that you want to crack. Follow these steps to use the tool:
Start Packet Tracer 7 and open the .pka file that you want to crack.
Start PacketTracerRecovery.exe (you may need to run it as administrator).
Go to Packet Tracer 7 and navigate to Extensions -> Activity Wizard (or press Ctrl+W).
Enter "Ferib" as the password and click OK.
Select Password in the left navigation panel.
Enter a new password and click Enable Password.
Save or Save As the .pka file with the new password.
