OSX Gather Safari LastSession.plist



This module downloads the LastSession.plist file from the target machine. LastSession.plist is used by Safari to track active websites in the current session, and sometimes contains sensitive information such as usernames and passwords. This module will first download the original LastSession.plist, and then attempt to find the credential for Gmail. The Gmail's last session state may contain the user's credential if his/her first login attempt failed (likely due to a typo), and then the page got refreshed or another login attempt was made. This also means the stolen credential might contain typos.

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
