Password Security Scanner v1.61 Updated

billon on 8 Jul 2020
  • 252KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 8 Jul 2020
  • Suggested by I am Baas

Password Security Scanner audits security information about stored passwords without displaying the password itself. Includes the total number of characters: numeric, lowercase/uppercase and repeating, as well as a rating of overall password strength. Can help determine whether the passwords used by other users are secured enough, without knowing or watching their actual passwords. Great for administrators concerned about security concerns caused by their users.

Currently scans the passwords of Internet Explorer, Mozilla-based Web browsers, Pale Moon, Mozilla Thunderbird, Chromium-based Web browsers, Dialup/VPN passwords, MSN/Windows Messenger, Microsoft Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Windows Credentials Passwords.

All programs that claim to do password auditing should work this way. Admins don't need to know the actual password, just if its complex enough.

@webfork, any software that can find out about how many numbers, upper case letters, lower case letters, symbols, punctuation characters, and length of a password, like Password Security Scanner, could be exploited to reveal the actual password itself. These kind of programs are very dangerous in that respect. That's why I'll never use Password Security Scanner.

@Mixture: bear in mind no system is ever 100% secure. Given enough resources, time and/or cunning a savvy hacker can get all your digital secrets. Your best bet is common sense, unrelenting vigilance and the help of stuff like the database at https://haveibeenpwned.com/ ...

SRWare Iron v83.0.4250.0 Updated

billon on 5 Jul 2020
  • 160MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 5 Jul 2020
  • Suggested by freakazoid

SRWare Iron is a web browser based on Chromium, the open source project behind Google Chrome. By default, Iron communicates less information compared to Chrome (e.g., creating a unique user ID or the submission of entries to Google to generate suggestions), making some operations more private and secure.

Iron supports both official and unofficial themes and some extensions from Chrome. Additionally, to enable blocking ad servers, a 'adblock.ini' is present in the program folder, and Opera's 'urlfilter.ini' can easily be converted to Iron's accepted format by following these instructions (or see comments below).

Note: It is recommended you change the homepage. The Iron default homepage may contain ads or links to fake adware-containing downloads.

Alternative packages:

  • Iron Portable (adds password portabilization, path portabilization, registry cleanup and Java support)
  • X-Iron (idem)

Category:
System requirements: Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? No. It creates some registry keys in 'HKCU\Software\Chromium'. Start with --incognito parameter to prevent saving history and cookies after program closes.
Unicode support: Yes
Path portability: No
License: BSD
How to extract: Download the "Portable" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch IronPortable.exe.

XP/Vista is no longer supported but the last release version 49 is available.

Just noting that Iron Portable and SRWare Iron Portable, as well as GoogleChromePortable and X-Chromium, create these registry keys:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome\Extensions

HKU\*\Software\Google
HKU\*\Software\Google\Chrome
HKU\*\Software\Google\Chrome\Extensions

Also note that the HKLM key is hidden in regedit. I can see it being created using Regshot and get to it and delete it with an alternate registry editor. I don't know how the key is protected. (Any info appreciated.)

The only Chromium browser that doesn't create these keys is Chromium Portable (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2169).

They also create the following folders/files:

C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad\metadata
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad\reports
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad\settings.dat

random17: thanks for the info but, as that addresses multiple programs and not just Iron, posts like that really belong in forums.

Very nice have been using for a long time and really like, thanks.

Like Opera, just wish it did not updates every week. Another today, never know what is updated, security, or unimportant.

PAFuser on 2019-04-09 11:04

Upgraded to 60, only 1 extension icon is visible. Does anyone know how to get them back? They can not be used when invisible.

PAFuser on 2019-04-10 17:44

Simple solution, download new installer, install to new location, add all extensions to Opera, change settings, import bookmarks. Easy upgrade, HA!

WebBrowserPassView v2.07 Updated

billon on 30 Jun 2020
  • 607KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 30 Jun 2020
  • Suggested by guinness

WebBrowserPassView is a password recovery tool that reveals the passwords stored by Internet Explorer, Firefox-based and Chromium-based Web browsers. This tool can be used to recover your lost/forgotten password of any website, including popular Web sites, like Facebook, Yahoo, Google, and GMail, as long as the password is stored by your Web Browser.

Currently, WebBrowserPassView cannot retrieve the passwords if they are encrypted with a master password.

To work with Chrome and Opera portable versions, go to 'options' and set the location of the portable browser folder. Select the user data folder in Chrome, and wand.dat for Opera. (Thanks to user "deer".)

Portable browser e.g. Firefox's passwords can be viewed by manually setting Options->Advanced Options:
For example,
Firefox Profile=D:\Firefox\Data\profile
Firefox Installation=D:\Firefox\App\Firefox

I have no problem with software companies trying to earn a little money with their products. I've been using Bandizip for years and it's been great. For now I'll stick with the previous version as that has all I need.
