Official Launch of Our First Linux Tool – FireMasterLinux

Finally we have decided to officially launch our first Linux tool, FireMasterLinux.  It  is the Linux port of our popular tool FireMaster, a Firefox master password recovery tool. FireMaster is the first ever built tool to recover the lost master password of Firefox.

.

In order to protect the stored login passwords, Firefox uses master password. If the master password is forgotten, then there is no way to recover the master password and user will lose all the stored login passwords as well.In this direction, FireMasterLinux helps in recovering lost master password to get back all the stored passwords. FireMasterLinux uses combination of techniques such as Dictionary, Hybrid and Brute force to recover the master password from the Firefox key database file.

Currently basic port of Linux with the support for various password recovery methods have been completed but there is lot to do to make it better. Final goal is to integrate it into Metasploit project. Also BackTrack team has expressed interest in integrating FireMasterLinux into their Live distribution once we hit the major version.

With bright future out there for the FireMasterLinux we are looking for more members to contribute to this project. If you think you can make it happen then do contact us.
