Just wanted to give everyone a heads up on a product called "Kernel SQL Password Recovery" is a complete fraud! (http://www.kerneldatarecovery.com/sql-password-recovery.html)
We purchased their product to recover passwords on a SQL 2000 server and all it did was change the passord of the SQL account in the .mdf and claimed that was the password. I could've done that in Enterprise manager os a T-SQL script.
Then when I contacted them asking what the hell is going on, they asked me to send them our .mdf file so they can do it. WTF?
Yeah right, like i'm going to send their crazy asses our .mdf file overseas from our govt agency. What a bunch of losers!
This was a basic SQL 2000 server patched OS & SQL 2000. One of the other shitty thing about their application was that it did not even show ALL of the SQL accounts. The specific one we wanted was not displayed in the list of accounts.
It ook over a month for them to finally say they'll refund, but that's after they kept saying they'll get back to me at least 4 times and never did.
Fukin low life bastards!
