This is an English language localisation of mimikatz. Mimikatz uses admin rights on Windows to display passwords of currently logged in users in plaintext. Mimikatz was written by Benjamin "gentilkiwi" Delpy.

In particular, the tool is useful when combined with netview. Netview is a network scanner with the capability to display active RDP connections, helping to point out systems on which multiple network users are currently logged in. These make good targets for mimikatz-en after a privilege escalation. Netview was released by Rob "mubix" Fuller.

The translation of r46 code from the svn repo was done first with Google Translate and then edited by Rich Rumble. I did a diff/patch against r47 and further editing.

Customarily, I am not responsible for any malicious use of this tool, and I hope that releasing it and its source code engenders better information security for the community at large.
