LaZagneForensic - Decrypt Windows Credentials From Another Host

LaZagne uses an internal Windows API called CryptUnprotectData to decrypt user passwords. This API should be called on the victim user session, otherwise, it does not work. If the computer has not been started (when the analysis is realized on an offline mounted disk), or if we do not want to drop a binary on the remote host, no passwords can be retrieved.
LaZagneForensic has been created to avoid this problem. This work has been mainly inspired by the awesome work done by Jean-Michel Picod for DPAPICK and Francesco Picasso for Windows DPAPI laboratory.

Note: The main problem is that to decrypt these passwords, the user Windows passwords is needed.

Installation
pip install -r requirements.txt

Usage

First way - Dump configuration files from the remote host
PS C:\Users\test\Desktop> Import-Module .\dump.ps1
PS C:\Users\test\Desktop> Dump
Folder dump created successfully !
python dump.py
  • Launch Lazagne with password if you have it
python laZagneForensic.py all -remote /tmp/dump -password 'ZapataVive'
  • Launch Lazagne without password
python laZagneForensic.py all -remote /tmp/dump

Second way - Mount a disk on your filesystem
  • The file should be mounted on your filesystem
test:~$ ls /tmp/disk/

  • Launch Lazagne with password if you have it
python laZagneForensic.py all -local /tmp/disk -password 'ZapataVive'
  • Launch Lazagne without password
python laZagneForensic.py all -local /tmp/disk
Note: Use -v for verbose mode and -vv for debug mode.

Supported software
Note: Check the following image to understand which passwords you could decrypt without needed the user windows password. All credentials found will be tested as Windows password in case of the user re-uses the same password.
