    The cleartext passwords dumped include passwords used to login to the Windows box interactively.

    What is WCE?

    Windows Credentials Editor (WCE) v1.3beta allows you to

    NTLM authentication:

    * List logon sessions and add, change, list and delete associated credentials (e.g.: LM/NT hashes)
    * Perform pass-the-hash on Windows natively
    * Obtain NT/LM hashes from memory (from interactive logons, services, remote desktop connections, etc.) which can be
    used to authenticate to other systems. WCE can perform this task without injecting code, just by reading and decrypting information stored in Windows internal memory structures. It also has the capability to automatically switch to code injection when the aforementioned method cannot be performed

    Kerberos authentication:

    * Dump Kerberos tickets (including the TGT) stored in Windows machines
    * Reuse/Load those tickets on another Windows machines, to authenticate to other systems and services
    * Reuse/Load those tickets on *Unix machines, to authenticate to other systems and services

    Digest Authentication:

    * Obtain cleartext passwords entered by the user when logging into a Windows system, and stored by the Windows Digest Authentication security package

    Supported Platforms
    Windows Credentials Editor supports Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 7 and 2008.
