    I wanted to know if anyone knew how to, or could send me a link for a program, that can decode the saved passwords in your windows registry for AIM version 5.9.3690

    I'd tell you the story as to why, but it isn't like anyone would believe me anyways, but I'm not looking for something that can get other peoples passwords and e-mail them to me, just one that can decrypt my own saved password on my computer and show it to me.

    Thanks for any info you have on this, I know older versions are easier to do it with, but if i downgrade far enough to do it, it doesn't change the encryption on the password so AIM no longer as it saved till I upgrade again.

    too bad I used the same password for the e-mail account I used to sign up for AIM haha. Sometimes I hate myself. Oh well, thanks for letting me know that so I can stop trying to decrypt that damn AIM registry key called password.

    It is, but there's no way to decrypt it. You can only attempt to crack it, but have fun trying that.

    does it show up as the little dots if it comes up automatically? If so, there are programs that can view what the dots are.

    There's always a way. ;)
    I'm not going to spend time trying, but I'm guessing someone will.

    word, i remember when people thought windows SAM files couldn't be decrypted.


    of course when a 3rd party program comes out... a new version of aim may already be well on its way.

    I used to have a program that showed the password for any name on your sign-on list. This was a few years ago, though. Sorry I can't help.

    very good point.... although i cannot remember the name of the program i had that did that, but if you have installed any version of C++ you should have a MFCSpy (or something similar) that should handle the job.

    or else look for something along the lines of "text box password viewer" :dunno:

    I really thought it would be possible to decrypt the key value that is in the registry. :dunno: :hs:

    The value stored on your computer is a 128-bit MD5 hash. This is not encryption and therefore cannot be "decrypted" into a unique plaintext password. Hashing functions are one-way meaning many passwords could theoretically hash to the same value. Attacks on hash codes focus on finding "collisions" usually in order to forge messages. If you wanted to find a single collision, it would take approximately 2^128 tries (not very feasible on your desktop...). And this collision would not necessarily be the plaintext password.

    A few weeks ago, a weakness was found in MD5 that allows an attacker to find a collision in much less time. Here's the abstract if you're interested:

    I have a program that cracks AIM passwords. Not sure if it works with the latest version though.

    There are some basic VB programs that allow you to view any * or dotted password by hovering your mouse over it. Worked for every program I tried it with, even webpages where the passwords were saved. Try searching for it
