MXtract – Memory Extractor & Analyser

MXtract is an opensource Linux based tool that analyses and dumps memory. Its developed as an offensive pentration testing tool which can be used to scan memory for private keys, IP, and passwords using regexes. Remember your results are only as good as your regexes.

In most Linux environments users can access the memory of processes, this allows attackers to harvest credentials, private keys, or anything that isn’t suppose to be seen but is being processed by a program in clear text.
