    **This tutorial is for a PC running a Windows 7 OS**

    I made a little application for this. You can get it here.

    For those of you who don't trust me, or you just want to do it yourself I will provide a short tutorial.

    Files needed:
    Cain & Abel
    Updated .DLLs
    WinPcap_4.0.2

    1. Download and install Cain & Abel.

    2. Download the updated .DLLs.

    3. For 32-bit users, copy the .DLLs into C:WindowsSystem32. For 64-bit users, copy the .DLLs into C:WindowsSysWOW64.

    4. Download and run the WinPcap installer.

    5. Enjoy sniffing around with Cain & Abel.


    EDIT: Here's the source for my app. It's just a compiled batch file so... Here you go.
    Code (Text):
    @echo off
    title Setup
    color 0f
    :x86x64
    cls
    echo "============================================================"
    echo "==============Cain & Abel Setup For Windows 7==============="
    echo "============================================================"
    echo "======================Made by Rheejus======================="
    echo "============================================================"
    echo:
    echo 32-bit architecture or 64-bit architecture?
    echo:
    set /p input=32 or 64?
    if %input%==32 goto x86
    if %input%==x86 goto x86
    if %input%==X86 goto x86
    if %input%==32-bit goto x86
    if %input%==64 goto x64
    if %input%==x64 goto x64
    if %input%==X64 goto x64
    if %input%==64-bit goto x64
    cls
    echo Wrong input!
    pause
    goto x86x64

    :x86
    Copy "npptools.dll" "%systemroot%System32npptools.dll"
    Copy "Packet.dll" "%systemroot%System32Packet.dll"
    Copy "WanPacket.dll" "%systemroot%System32WanPacket.dll"
    Copy "wpcap.dll" "%systemroot%System32wpcap.dll"
    ca_setup.exe
    WinPcap_4_0_2
    goto end

    :x64
    Copy "npptools.dll" "%systemroot%SysWOW64npptools.dll"
    Copy "Packet.dll" "%systemroot%SysWOW64Packet.dll"
    Copy "WanPacket.dll" "%systemroot%SysWOW64WanPacket.dll"
    Copy "wpcap.dll" "%systemroot%SysWOW64wpcap.dll"
    ca_setup.exe
    WinPcap_4_0_2.exe
    goto end

    :end
    cls
    echo "=================================================="
    echo "=========Cain & Abel Setup For Windows 7=========="
    echo "=================================================="
    echo "================Made by Rheejus==================="
    echo "=================================================="
    echo "================Setup Finished===================="

    Did a quick Google search. So this is a password sniffer for finding user account passwords on Windows?

    I knew this. Anyone should, but the .DLL part and the time to make your own program deserves a Thanks. Nice tutorial.

    WTF, are you serious?

    Cain & Abel is legal, a cracked copy of photoshop cs4 is totally illegal.

    Use Commview. It's better and not detected by AV software.

    It's better because it's just more efficient in my eyes. Cain also had times when it would cut my internet for a brief moment. Commview also shows the country from where the IP is coming from which could be useful in certain situations. Cain being detected, I'm not 100% sure, but I'm googling the issue as I type this. :tongue:

    It's detected as a false positive because it can be used as a hacking tool. Just because it gets detected doesn't mean it's got a virus in it! It's a great tool, maybe commview is better for the specific purpose you're thinking of but cain and abel can do so much more.

    Well yea I know it's a false positive, but when you do a clean up of your computer, sometimes you don't realize it and you delete those files and then Cain is just useless. So you have to reinstall it.

    ... Seriously? This tutorial was made FOR Windows 7. It even documents the slight difference in installation required for the 64 bit version.


    Think about:
    Did you run as administrator?
    32 bit or 64 bit architecture?
    Is your computer plugged in?
