It's really not clear what you are trying to do.

Do you mean to say that you are trying BSD from its live CD, and that you need to access its root account?

No Linux distro will boot you straight to a root account. You will always have to access the root account yourself.

Let me start fresh

I have a live BSD using matte desktop
This comes with 3 users
User1- other(unknown password)
User2- personal user currently using
User3- guest

Before I was given this distro I was made to believe user2 had full privileges but as I came to find out my zenmap won't open as I'm not root user

Person responsible for this Linux based disc might be dead or something in the middle east or CIA might of snatch him up the case is I can't contact him

The project itself was really closed group so details of even the specs for this is lost (maybe)
I'm not Guud at reprogramming Linux based software
I'm pretty sure as it is Unix it has to be hackable some sort of security flaw bug idk

I KNOW THERE IS A SECURITY EXPLOIT BUILT IN AS A "BACKDOOR" OFCOURSE KNOWLEDGE OF THIS IS ALMOST UNKNOWN EXCEPT BY THE OBVIOUS PEOPLE
THE ONLY PROBLEM IS I CANT FIND THIS ZERO DAY BUG AS I CANT READ CORRECTLY UNIX/Linux

Why do you want to hack, or try backdoor, or security exploit and all those sort of things?

How much do you know about Linux, or BSD?

Where did you download the live BSD CD from?

And it's not matte desktop.. but its Mate ... which is a desktop environment.

If you download any live CD of any Linux/BSD ... they come with a default root password. For example, if you download PC-BSD, its root password by default is pcbsd.

So, there must be a default root password for the distro that you downloaded. All you need to do is to go the site of the particular distro, and find the default root password.

There is no need to use security exploits, or hack into the system, and all those things... which you won't be able to do anyways.

My Unix knowledge would be none
I can't read or write any language design for Linux

On one note yes they would come with a password for the public to mess with it and have almost complete access to the desktop
It doesn't work when it was engineered by a team that is not in its current stage provide any assistance or even be found

I did not download this from nowhere it so happen before my friend left I was in the studio and bamm he told me If i wanted to see a ghost program in action after messing with the OS I like it smooth UI and other several unique scripts that I have only seen here so far!

I have this is on a 32gb flash drive. All I do once the .iso in a burned dvd becomes corrupted I just dispose of it and make a new .iso without the fear of any security concerns which is the main priority of certain clients

I have used this os for a little over like over a year idk don't keep track
It so happen I didn't use my zenmap on the os because I've been using backtrack for like 6 months it has several tools that I find simple to use anyways
Now week ago I was just in the mood to use my OS but my luck has it I found out I'm not a root user

So yea one thing I'm certain about is this glitches, hacks, backdoors, zero day exploits, are not a joke to be taken likely.
All this points of entrance have certain procedures to uncover so basically it looks like hacking but its not. Why do you think "updates" are necessary to improve security but in the long run them self's are the ones taking innocent unnecessary info? Everything that I use from my dropbox all the way to my Cleopatra or true crypt software are crackable by using this built in back doors

Anyways I would love to have full access to this at all cost (which I'm trying to avoid)

People call it hacking and so on but really everything we do from a shortcut to a bookmark in mozilla is a hack the revolution of pc started by hacking

Hacking has taken a bad name and just frown upon it just takes correct information not just bits and pieces

I'm just not explaining my self correctly it would take hands on to understand this os and its potential uses for the internet to make it safer that's why I want this one specifically this os it just grinds my head into mush

I just need a little of guidance or just proper steps on how to nothing more as I'm not surrounded by individuals that would be helpful this website is my second best choice

When you ask for help, you need to be clear what you are asking for exactly. Right now, most of it does not make sense to me.

All I have understood so far is that you want to access the root password for a live BSD distro. Am I right?

You run the OS from a CD? If you are running it from a live CD, then its root password could not have been altered by anyone. So, the root password will remain the default password that comes with the live CD. So, you just need to know what exact distro you are using, and then find the default password for it by searching on the internet. Like, I told for PC-BSD. It's simple as that.

For any other help with exploiting the security exploits, or backdoor, or any other such help, it would be better if you ask that on the forum of that particular distro, because that's a job for experts who know about the intricacies of the system.
