This paper, shows by demonstration with System Penetration, how to reveal security holes by us ing some tools like ‘Cain and Abel’ and ‘Wireshark’ and carrying out the attacks such as cracking password, performing man in the middle attacks, sniffing user traffic etc. The tests were performed by establishing the virtual lab. The objective of the pape r was to demonstrate how easily one’s system can be hacked by revealing various security holes in windows - based system. The results show how simple it is to abuse a system or sniff a password if very little attention is paid to the system security and safe ty. Since systems can never be always safe from attacks so it is good for individuals to know about these threats and use proper security mechanisms so that they do not get exploited as discussed in this paper.
