Using MessenPass

When you run MessenPass, it automatically detects the Instant Messenger applications installed on your computer, decrypts the passwords they store, and displays all user name/password pairs that it found in the main window of MessenPass. If from some reason, MessenPass fails to locate the installed Instant Messenger application, you can try to manually select the right folder of your IM application by using ‘Select Folders’ option (from the File menu).

On the main window of MessenPass, you can select one or more password items, and then copy them to the clipboard in tab-delimited format (you can paste this format into Excel or Open-Office Spreadsheet), or save them into text/html files.

    Nah, ancient messengers are for archaeologists :)
    I’m more interested in cracking some SIP traffic so http://hub.darcs.net/zabbal/sippass and alike are way to go.

    Although getting skype could be handy but from proprietary messangers on laptop (not phone) I can’t think of anything widespread enough. Do you have some poplarity numbers by protocol/program by any chance?
