I am not personally responsable for anything you learn about this and if you steal someones data with the demonstrated techniques and get caught then that is your problem.
Everyone knows that browsers save data about what site you vist and what you download. But what data do they really keep about what you do on the internet? Thats what this project is about.
Fistly i went into %appdata% as this is where browsers such as Firefox and Chrome save their userdata. I remembered that there were programs that extracted the username and passwords that were saved in such browsers. I then wondered where they saved your history and opened a few files with notepad++ and found the string SQLite3 in some of the files. So SQL3 is used for some data that is recorded. What data?
Because im your average lazy skid i find an SQL database GUI and open these files. Some didnt seem interesting but others did. The file that was interesting for Firefox was places.sqlite which had history and downloads data. So i thought why don’t i practice my python and SQL skills and make a simple data extractor so i did.
Honestly that was just some rambleing that no one wants to hear and just wants to see a finished product so here
