OperaPassView v1.10

Checker on 21 Mar 2014

OperaPassView is a small password recovery tool that decrypts the content of the Opera Web browser password file (wand.dat) and displays the list of all Web site passwords stored in this file.

Category:
System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch OperaPassView.exe.
What's new?
  • Fixed to detect properly the passwords of login.live.com and probably other Web sites.
  • Added /RawExport command-line option to export Opera wand file into a raw text file (without detecting which fields are the user names and passwords). This option is useful when OperaPassView fails to detect the user name / password field properly and displays other fields instead.
  • Added /LoadWand command-line option to specify the desired wand file to load.

This is a great program. Allows you to copy one or all of the passwords and save to a text file. Steve313, did you load the wand.dat file through the options?

Now it's work. Thanks.

SniffPass is a small password monitoring software that listens to your network, capturing the passwords that pass through your network adapter and display them instantly. SniffPass captures passwords using the 'Raw Socket' method. It is able to determine the following Protocols: POP3, IMAP4, SMTP, FTP, and HTTP (basic authentication passwords).

Category:
System Requirements: Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: It uses the 'Raw Sockets' method, but can have some limitations on certain systems. If it's unable to capture passwords try either WinPcap capture driver or the Microsoft Network Monitor, which should solve the problem.
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch SniffPass.exe.
What's new?
  • Fixed bug: When opening the 'Capture Options' dialog-box after Network Monitor Driver 3.x was previously selected, SniffPass switched back to Raw Sockets mode.

Symantec AntiVirus says this program is a threat - labels it HackTool.SniffPass Info from the Symantec site: Updated: January 15, 2010 4:46:01 PM
Type: Security Assessment Tool
Risk Impact: Low
Systems Affected: Linux, Solaris, Windows 2000, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows XP

BehaviorPasswordRevealer is a Security Assessment Tool intended to discover passwords by sniffing network traffic.
-------------------------------------
I can see where it could be used as a malicious program, but I'm betting this is a false positive. You'll have to make your antivirus program ignore it to use it, I suppose. Just wanted everybody who downloads this know about it...

Tintenkiller on 2010-09-08 09:15

Sadly, that's pretty common nowadays.

A lot of Nirsofts great tools are labeled als hacking software by numerous AntiVirus Apps (e.g. Trend Micro). Thus trying to block them. It's always a pain in the ass.

But not much you can do about it.

It's not really a false positive either - since those tools ARE sort of hacking tools. But the tools themselves do nothing harmful per se.

ThunderbirdPassDecryptor v1.7

webfork on 8 Jul 2016

ThunderbirdPassDecryptor is a tool that recovers the stored mail account password by Mozilla Thunderbird. You can also use it to recover the Thunderbird account passwords from another system (i.e. a backup or profile folder).

Note:

  • If a "master" password is set, other passwords are not accessible without it. The publisher offers a command-line FireMaster to try and brute-force the protection. Strong passwords (15+ characters) are not worthwhile to brute-force.
  • The main website download link has switch to an encrypted installer. Linking to softpedia.

@Sam - I know this is a little late, but use Lupo's Universal Extractor (http://www.lupopensuite.com/db/universalextractor.htm). I just used it and it works.
