    Finding out the password of a account already logged on

    Is there any way to find out the password of an account already logged on. A program or something.

    You have to hijack their session, install a reverse lookup keystroke logger, find the area in which the passwords get loaded into memory, force the machine to dump core in that area, grab the core file before it automatically gets deleted (approx 2 seconds in XP I believe), open the core file in vi (yes, you can get vi for XP), find the users name someplace in that file, delete everything before the users name, count 127 characters after the users name (including spaces), delete everything after that character, save the file as a text file, import it into word, create 2 columns (1 with user name, 1 with everything else), save it as a word template file, then import it into access. If done properly, you wil have a plain text version of the password.

    Soul, precisely! Microsoft office has those devilish formatting problems, where plain text will be pasted in and become horribly misaligned, and where it doesn't let you easily tell it NOT to make that address a blue-and-underlined hyperlink...

    Thumbs up

    Isn't there a drop down menu somewhere
    that says "steal user password"?
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.
