Vivek Ramachandran Posted February 11, 2009 Share Posted February 11, 2009 In this video i make a simple demonstration of how we can dump a program's memory and then use the strings program to find in memory passwords and other sensitive information. A large number of applications can fall prey to this security vulnerability and get their user's passwords hacked - web browsers, email clients, instant messengers etc fall in this category. The main idea behind the hack is that while the application is running, we should be able to dump its entire memory to file, without having to stop or tamper with the application in any way. http://securitytube.net/Dumping-Passwords-...dump-video.aspx Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
