Hey guys!

Your board seems to be the right one msn_happy.gif
I am working at a ultimate decrypter and also want to add a MSN decrypt function!
Could somebody hook me up with some example code?
For reading out the username and decrypting the password?

Would be really nice!

I forgot to say. I am programming in c#!

They always used to be, back in the MSNM7 days. I don't see why they would have stopped doing so.

The credentials were encrypted up until MSN Messenger 7.5. During the 8.0 beta, they suddenly switched to plain text. It's been that way since.

Hmmm I cant find any plaintext anyway.
Is it because I am using Windows Live Messenger?

They are stored in a storage location provided by Windows. If you were to look at the file directly, yes they would be encrypted. However, if you use the API provided by Microsoft to access it, there is no additional encryption on the password (there normally should be, since anyone can access that API). This is what I meant.

EDIT: adjusted punctuation

Can you show me which API I have to use?
A link in this board would be enough msn_wink.gif
Would be really nice if you could help me a bit more msn_happy.gif
Coding I can do myself but first I have to understand how this system works.

Well, if you want to make it difficult....

According to the page that Stigmata posted, Windows Live Messenger's passwords are stored in the windows Credentials file which is stored here:
QUOTE
Windows XP/2003: [Windows Profile]\Application Data\Microsoft\Credentials\[User SID]\Credentials and [Windows Profile]\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Credentials\[User SID]\Credentials
Windows Vista: [Windows Profile]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Credentials\[Random ID] and [Windows Profile]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Credentials\[Random ID]

You'll read the documentation on the functions that doggie09 linked to and then realize that you can use those two functions to retrieve the data.
