How can i use CryptUnprotectData?

i make a simple chrome password exractor but i dont know how to put parameters in CryptUnProtectData

pub unsafe fn CryptUnprotectData(
    pdatain: *const CRYPTOAPI_BLOB,
    ppszdatadescr: *mut PWSTR,
    poptionalentropy: *const CRYPTOAPI_BLOB,
    pvreserved: *mut c_void,
    ppromptstruct: *const CRYPTPROTECT_PROMPTSTRUCT,
    dwflags: u32,
    pdataout: *mut CRYPTOAPI_BLOB
) -> BOOL

sorry for my bad english

The docs for the win32 API have more details on that function

Most of the parameters are optional and unused by Chrome so it’s not too hard to call, once you've parsed the JSON state file and Base64-decoded the encrypted key with normal Rust code:

fn unprotect(data: &mut [u8]) -> windows::core::Result<Vec<u8>> {
    let data_in = CRYPTOAPI_BLOB { cbData: data.len() as u32, pbData: data.as_mut_ptr() };
    let mut data_out = CRYPTOAPI_BLOB { cbData: 0, pbData: null_mut() };
    unsafe {
        CryptUnprotectData(&data_in, null_mut(), null_mut(), null_mut(), null(), 0, &mut data_out).ok()?;
        let bytes = slice::from_raw_parts(data_out.pbData, data_out.cbData as usize).to_vec();
        LocalFree(data_out.pbData as isize);

That code will leak memory if to_vec() panics, but I don’t think that’s a big problem in this case.
