Cain & Abel 4.9.48


The interface of Cain & Abel can be used to show just how capable this program is. It has eight tabs for its main functions. They are Decoders, Network, Sniffer, Cracker, Traceroute, CCDU, Wireless and Query. The app also gives you a line of buttons which give access to the most important utilities of the program, but here is a small problem. Their look is outdated and it is a very complicated task to determine which button is designed for what function. Once you put the mouse cursor over the button it will display its function, but this is not a very user friendly way of working and informing.

Basic Operations

Cain & Abel is a very adjustable application, because you have a lot of configuration options in the Configuration Dialog. There you can set Certificate Spoofing, Certificates Collector, Sniffer, Arp Poison Routing, Challenge Spoofing, Filters and Ports, HTTP Fiends and Traceroute. While you use the application it is a good idea to switch off the Windows firewall when you use this program because some of the functions of the app may not work correctly.


Cain & Abel is one of the apps that are free, but at the same time it is capable and adjustable. It will crack almost any password, so with it you will feel a bit like a hacker. But don't overdo it, because some of its functions may lead to trouble. Still, if you forgot your password and you have no other way, this program will help you.
