Is it possible to steal Windows Live passwords?

There exists no software that is able to simply steal someone's Windows Live password. It is not possible technically to do so.
It is not possible to make a program that allows you to simply type in the email address for which you would like to see the password.

There are quite a few programs advertised on the internet that claim to be able to steal Windows Live passwords. 100% of these programs are dangerous viruses and trojans and can be classified into two types: Fake Stealers and Keyloggers with embedded spyware or virus.

Fake Windows Live Password Stealers

Fake stealers as the name suggests pretend that they can actually steal your Windows Live password. Their interface usually suggests that you can simply enter any email address and click a button to steal someone's password. They show what looks like a "live status" of the stealing process but in fact they are usually fooling the person meanwhile infecting their own computer.

We describe some of these so-called stealers and what harm they can do below.

The program named Windows Live Password Stealer 2007 looks like you can steal any Windows Live Password just by selecting Windows Live account name and stating the secret question.

This is definitely fake since you can not find your old Windows Live password even if you know the answer to the secret question. Knowing the answer to the secret question allows you to set a new password for your Windows Live account.

This program is fake and does not work!

According to AVG Antivirus, this code is detected as Trojan Horse SHeur3.qic. Trojan Horse SHeur3.qic is a harmful Trojan that will infect a computer by exploiting unpatched security loopholes found on the infected computer. Trojan Horse SHeur3.qic will connect to a remote server to download more malware and execute on to already infected computer.

Just like Windows Live Password Stealer 2007 download this Mr. X MSN Password Finder v2.54 has all the attributes of what the Windows Live password stealer should look like. The demonstration shows that any account name can be specified. It is obviously fake and nothing happens while you sit and watch the moving progress bar after clicking the Find Password button.

According to BitDefender Antivirus this program is detected as Trojan.Heur. It is a Malware Trojan which basically means it allows criminals to control your computer.

Here is another fake tool named WLM - MSN Password Finder (also known as WLM MSN Messenger Password Finder). It claims to be able to steal Windows Live passwords.
This one only asks for a desired WLM account name before it can start infecting your computer.

Dr.Web antivirus detects this program as Trojan.Fraudster.28.

MSN Buccaneer V1.1 Beta Fixed is asks for a login and Windows Live server name (to further mislead the user). You should see the moving status bar once you click the Crack It button. Don't do it! This will at most steal your own Windows Live password and infect your computer with a virus at the very least!

It is not possible to create a program that simply asks for a username before stealing the password.

Keyloggers for Windows Live Messenger

The other type of Windows Live password stealer downloads that we have discovered on the internet are variations of keyloggers. A keylogger is a stealth program that quietly sits on your computer and records every key that you press on the keyboard. In case of stealing Windows Live password these keyloggers usually contain a fake Windows Live Messenger login screen:

What you see above is a fake Windows Live Messenger screen shown by a keylogger. It is detected by antiviruses as Variant:Downloader.Banload.Kgk (downloader trojan). If this was installed on a victims machine the victim would not see this as fake and would enter his/her Windows Live password. Once you click on the Sign In button the keylogger will tell you that there is a connection error, record the password you have entered to the hidden text file and possibly send it off to the attacker.

According to the description of these Windows Live password stealers that are advertised as a free download, these need to be installed on a victims machine. This means you will need physical access to the victims PC or you need to have control over their PC via the internet.

The issue with these stealers is that they are all infected with viruses. So apart from recording the password to a hidden text file they also infect both attackers and victims machines.

Summary

Next time you start looking around for a place where you can download Windows Live password stealer, think twice and take into consideration that there is no way to easily steal someone's Windows Live password.
