About Elcomsoft Internet Password Breaker
Elcomsoft Internet Password Breaker provides investigators, security and law enforcement organizations the ability to instantly retrieve the login and password information to a variety of resources.
Logins and passwords are routinely cached by Web browsers. Elcomsoft Internet Password Breaker instantly retrieves cached logins and passwords to Web sites, including pre-filled forms and AutoComplete information stored in the Internet Explorer cache.

“ElcomSoft is offering a simple and convenient tool to be used by forensic specialists and government investigators”, said Vladimir Katalov, ElcomSoft CEO. “Just a few clicks will reveal hidden information stored on a PC, including cached Web passwords and auto-login forms, passwords to email accounts and user identities for all Microsoft email clients. We are especially proud to have addressed the enhanced security model employed by Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 and 8.”
Internet Explorer 7 and 8 feature a new, enhanced security model for storing cached password information. Every bit of information is encrypted with the URL of a Web site, making it impossible to access stored information without knowing the exact Web address of a resource. Elcomsoft Internet Password Breaker makes it possible to work around this new security model by analyzing cached URL history and identifying Web sites last visited in order to retrieve any login and password information stored for those Web sites.

In addition, Elcomsoft Internet Password Breaker reveals Microsoft Passport passwords stored by Windows Live Mail, user identity passwords, and passwords protecting PST files created by Microsoft Outlook up to version 2010.
Elcomsoft Internet Password Breaker automatically identifies all supported products and user identities, locates all available accounts and PST files, and reveals stored password information.
