Powershell – Reveal Windows Memory Credentials

The purpose of this script is to make a proof of concept of how retrieve Windows credentials with Powershell and CDB Command-Line Options (Windows Debuggers)
It allows to retrieve credentials from windows 2003 to 2012 and Windows 10 (it was tested on 2003, 2008r2, 2012, 2012r2 and Windows 7 – 32 and 64 bits, Windows 8 and Windows 10 Home edition).
It works even if you are on another architecture than the system targeted.

Features

  • it works even if you are on a different architecture than the target
  • it leaves no trace in memoryless
