OS X Gather Messages



This module will collect the Messages sqlite3 database files and chat logs from the victim's machine. There are four actions you may choose: DBFILE, READABLE, LATEST, and ALL. DBFILE and READABLE will retrieve all messages, and LATEST will retrieve the last X number of messages (useful with 2FA). Module was tested with OS X 10.11 (El Capitan).
