Hello spiderfoot

spiderfoot is a cool OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) tool that is easy to get started with, and the code can be found here at GitHub.

This tool fits in the reconnaissance phase of the ATT&CK Matrix for Enterprise. It's always good to use these kind of tools on your self to see what information is out there in the public about you.

So far I have only tried to scan in passive mode, however there are other modes to use and it has many modules that can be used in the scan. Check out their site for more information.

This is how I installed it on my machine, see GitHub for the latest instructions on how to run/install the tool.

tar zxvf v4.0.tar.gz
cd spiderfoot-4.0
pip3 install -r requirements.txt
python3 ./ -l
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then browse to the url to start your scan.
