How To Use



  • Checks SNMP is enabled on the route
  • Brute forces the SNMP Read Only and Read Write community strings (can edit which wordlist it uses in script header)
  • Enumerates information such as IOS version, hostname, Arp table, Routing table, interface list and IP addresses using the RO or RW community string.
  • If RW community was found it will then download the router config automatically.
  • It then searches and displays any enable or telnet passwords in clear text.
  • If it finds Cisco type 7 encoded enable or telnet passwords it will auto decode them.
  • It will display the Enable secret type 5 password and attempt to crack the MD5. It uses John first with its built in wordlist for speed. If this fails it will try and full crack.


Tested on Backtrack 5 and Kali.
