extract from *.txt unkown string after keyword

Recommended Posts

Hallo,

I have got about 300 *.txt with passwords, IP Adresses, ... that I want to import into the keepass programm via csv import. The First step I think is to extract it into an ini file. 

 

each password.txt is inside a specific folder name

 

the password.txt contains:

user: specific1

password: specific_start_then_random

user: specific2

password: random

 

The idea is to go in each folder, open the txt file  and

 

for user specific1:

search for "password: specific_start" and then copy the next signs until there is LF or CLRF into an ini file

 

for user specific2:

search for "password: " and then copy the next signs until there is LF or CLRF into an ini file

 

can you give me a short plan with wich commands I should work?

 

Thanks!

Martin

Hi @mseidel, and welcome to the AutoIt forums :welcome:

You could try _FileListToArray() to get the list of all .txt files you have, then loop through the array returned, use FileRead() to read the content of the i-file, and extract all the Users and Passwords stored in it, which then you can do whatever you want.

Could you please provide a real-world (reproducible) example of a Password.txt file? :)

  • I will always thank you for the time you spent for me.
    I'm here to ask, and from your response, I'd like to learn.
    By my knowledge, I can help someone else, and "that someone" could help in turn another, and so on.

mseidel,

300+ files with IP addresses, user names and passwords? Please explain just what these are and what you intend doing with them.

P.S. And just to be absolutely clear - this is the Mod team determining the legality of the thread, so everyone else please keep out.

Hi, 

Sorry for my late answer, I havn't got an email.

I'm working in an IT company an the Passwords are generated from the work at customers.

 

An example of the txt file:

 

Quote

 

IP-Adresse: 192.168.2.31

Serial: 8027600364000017831

User: root
Password: xYk7zWQjpYpU

User: wbadmin
Password: CFK394682

Contract-ID: Ev23K-sdCp7?tZ*T

 

 

to "extract" the Password I think something like (?<=root\nPassword:\s)*(?=\s) should work or do you have a better idea?

 

greetings

mseidel,

You work in IT and store customer usernames and passwords in clear text? Please tell me you are joking!

mseidel,

Disgraceful! Well, we are certainly not going to encourage such appalling behaviour - thread closed.

And can we please have the name of your company to make sure we have nothing to do with it in the future.
