Multi Gather Mozilla Thunderbird Signon Credential Collection



This module will collect credentials from Mozilla Thunderbird by downloading the necessary files such as 'signons.sqlite', 'key3.db', and 'cert8.db' for offline decryption with third party tools. If necessary, you may also set the PARSE option to true to parse the sqlite file, which contains sensitive information such as the encrypted username/password. However, this feature is not enabled by default, because it requires SQLITE3 gem to be installed on your machine.
