Programs like Microsoft Outlook, VNC and Cute FTP show the passwords you type in the password box as asterix. The passwords are stored behind the asterix. Asterix logger is a software program that is designed to reveal passwords hidden behind the asterix.

This software is compatible with Windows 9x, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows NT and Windows XP.
