My URL Sniffer now has the ability to download an encrypted zip file of a target URL instead of just displaying the html source (the target URL can be anything including actual executables - encrypted zip files are necessary for submitting malware samples to some antivirus vendors and other legitimate parties, and also to prevent accidental infection of your own computer). Additionally, very simple html syntax highlighting has also been added for the source view.

I created a script that converts malicious addresses into harmless addresses that can be handled safely, and it converts harmless addresses back into their original form. It is also able to clean data provided by certain searches and remove typos when analyzing data that has been provided by others. It accomplishes this using JavaScript so that potentially sensitive information never leaves your network. This script was made for a very specific purpose, so it may not appeal to everyone. It's on the menu to the left as "URL Sanitizer", or you can just click here.

edit: I created an alternative to web-sniffer as well. Sometimes malicious websites will remember previous visitors and return alternate results, but even they can't block everyone.

Introduction

Before I begin, understand that it's illegal to break into computers without authorization. Laws vary by location, but it's at least a third degree felony in Florida, and it's a second degree felony if you cause harm. Don't do it. That said, there are plenty of legitimate reasons to reset a password, and the same approach can also be used for data recovery and making other configuration changes when normal access methods fail. I actually messed up my boot config yesterday and had to do something like this to fix it. Just don't be an idiot because you can lose data or worse - I'm not responsible for how you use this information.
