Debugging Lsass.exe

You need two host for this one!

I copied over from my wdk 8.1 install from C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\Debuggers\x64 to remote host c:\x64

on remote host run

C:\Users\Administrator>cd c:\x64
c:\x64>dbgsrv.exe -t tcp:port=1234,password=letmeinlol

on local host run

C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\Debuggers\x64>windbg.exe -premote tcp:server=,port=1234,password=letmeinlol -pn lsass.exe -y "C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Temp\SymbolCache"


When you want to quit – make sure you use ‘qd’ to  ‘quit and detach’ so you don’t kill LSA  on the target machine.

bp PasswordFilter!DllMain
