The Exploit-Database Git Repository

This is the official repository of The Exploit Database, a project sponsored by Offensive Security.

The Exploit Database is an archive of public exploits and corresponding vulnerable software, developed for use by penetration testers and vulnerability researchers. Its aim is to serve as the most comprehensive collection of exploits gathered through direct submissions, mailing lists, and other public sources, and present them in a freely-available and easy-to-navigate database. The Exploit Database is a repository for exploits and proof-of-concepts rather than advisories, making it a valuable resource for those who need actionable data right away.

This repository is updated daily with the most recently added submissions. Any additional resources can be found in our binary sploits repository.

Included with this repository is the searchsploit utility, which will allow you to search through the exploits using one or more terms.

root@kali:~# searchsploit -h
  Usage: searchsploit [OPTIONS] term1 [term2] ... [termN]
  searchsploit afd windows local
  searchsploit -t oracle windows

   -c, --case     Perform a case-sensitive search (Default is insensitive).
   -h, --help     Show this help screen.
   -t, --title    Search just the exploit title (Default is title AND the file's path).
   -u, --update   Update exploit database from git.
   -v, --verbose  Verbose output. Title lines are allowed to overflow their columns.
   -w, --www      Show URLs to rather than local path.
       --colour   Disable colour highlighting.
       --id       Display EDB-ID value rather than local path.

 * Use any number of search terms, in any order.
 * Search terms are not case sensitive, and order is irrelevant.
   * Use '-c' if you wish to reduce results by case-sensitive searching.
* Use '-t' to exclude the file's path to filter the search results.
   * Could possibly remove false positives (especially when searching numbers).
 * When updating from git or displaying help, search terms will be ignored.
