I have been doing a lot of research for my class on how to conduct email hacking. I want to know if it is true that there are applications that can be used to crack the password of email accounts in yahoo, aol, gmail and so on. I have seen some demonstration over YouTube . I want to know from you guys if this is true. Are there anyways for this to be done? Let's say we can email a server from the Yahoo side to give us a password? Are there any software involve? Over the network we can use Cain and Abel to listen for this password. But in the wild (Internet) is it still possible to grab this accounts with or without any tools?
Thanks again in Advance
