pwdump6 1.4.0 and fgdump 1.3.2 Released
From: fizzgig () foofus net

Greetings all,

I've made a new version of pwdump6 avaliable (1.4.0) along with fgdump 1.3.2. These are available respectively at:




Full details can be found on their home pages, but both versions provide some feature upgrades as well as bug fixes. 
Folks with really old versions of either program should definitely look at upgrading, since there are numerous 
performance improvements and full multithreading capabilities in both packages.

What are pwdump6 and fgdump?

pwdump6 is a password hash dumper for Windows 2000 and later systems. It is capable of dumping LanMan and NTLM hashes 
as well as password hash histories. It is based on pwdump3e, and should be stable on XP SP2 and 2K3. If you have had 
LSASS crash on you using older tools, this should fix that.

fgdump is a more powerful version of pwdump6. pwdump tends to hang and such when antivirus is present, so fgdump takes 
care of that by shutting down and later restarting a number of AV programs. It also can dump cached credentials and 
protected storage items, and can be run in a multithreaded fashion very easily. I strongly recommend using fgdump over 
pwdump6, especially given that fgdump uses pwdump6 under the hood! You'll get everything pwdump6 gives you and a lot 

Enjoy, feel free to contact me with any reported bugs and/or feature requests.
