Why this tool?
The RID_ENUM utility (or Rid Enum) performs a cycling attack to attempt retrieving all users from a Windows domain controller. It focuses on retrieving identities from the domain admins group. The attack will work to versions, with Windows 2003 being the latest. This was to ensure compatibility with previous versions of Windows. Windows 2008 and later will not allow this type of enumeration to happen.
