What is this?

theHarvester is a tool for gathering subdomain names, e-mail addresses, virtual hosts, open ports/ banners, and employee names from different public sources (search engines, pgp key servers).

Is a really simple tool, but very effective for the early stages of a penetration test or just to know the visibility of your company in the Internet.

The sources are:

Passive:

  • threatcrowd: Open source threat intelligence - https://www.threatcrowd.org/

  • crtsh: Comodo Certificate search - www.crt.sh

  • google: google search engine - www.google.com (With optional google dorking)

  • googleCSE: google custom search engine

  • google-profiles: google search engine, specific search for Google profiles

  • bing: microsoft search engine - www.bing.com

  • bingapi: microsoft search engine, through the API (you need to add your Key in the discovery/bingsearch.py file)

  • dogpile: Dogpile search engine - www.dogpile.com

  • pgp: pgp key server - mit.edu

  • linkedin: google search engine, specific search for Linkedin users

  • vhost: Bing virtual hosts search

  • twitter: twitter accounts related to an specific domain (uses google search)

  • googleplus: users that works in target company (uses google search)

  • yahoo: Yahoo search engine

  • baidu: Baidu search engine

  • shodan: Shodan Computer search engine, will search for ports and banner of the discovered hosts (http://www.shodanhq.com/)

  • hunter: Hunter search engine (you need to add your Key in the discovery/huntersearch.py file)

  • google-certificates: Google Certificate Transparency report

Active:

  • DNS brute force: this plugin will run a dictionary brute force enumeration
  • DNS reverse lookup: reverse lookup of ip´s discovered in order to find hostnames
  • DNS TDL expansion: TLD dictionary brute force enumeration

Modules that need API keys to work:

  • googleCSE: You need to create a Google Custom Search engine(CSE), and add your Google API key and CSE ID in the plugin (discovery/googleCSE.py)
  • shodan: You need to provide your API key in discovery/shodansearch.py (one provided at the moment)
  • hunter: You need to provide your API key in discovery/huntersearch.py (none is provided at the moment)

Dependencies:

Changelog in 3.0.0:

  • Subdomain takeover checks
  • Port scanning (basic)
  • Improved DNS dictionary
  • Shodan DB search fixed
  • Result storage in Sqlite
