    Authentication protocal weaknesses

    Hi all,
    can some one help me in sorting out that how cain and ettercap sniff authentication protocols (not arp poisoning etc) how they decrypt them as i didnot find any technical information on their sites. The concept and the weakness in protocols and how they exploit those protocol weakness.

    Thanks

    I assume you are asking about the way that CAIN decrypts MS Terminal Services strong encryption? If so, the answer is much simpler than you think. MS embedded the key in a DLL file which CAIN simply grabs and uses for the decrypt. No magic here.
