Saturday, February 18, 2017


dirsearch is a simple command line tool designed to brute force directories and files in websites.

Operating Systems supported
  • Windows XP/7/8/10
  • GNU/Linux
  • MacOSX

Features
  • Multithreaded
  • Keep alive connections
  • Support for multiple extensions (-e|--extensions asp,php)
  • Reporting (plain text, JSON)
  • Heuristically detects invalid web pages
  • Recursive brute forcing
  • HTTP proxy support
  • User agent randomization
  • Batch processing

About wordlists
Dictionaries must be text files. Each line will be processed as such, except that the special word %EXT% is used, which will generate one entry for each extension (-e | --extension) passed as an argument.
Example:
  • example/
  • example.%EXT%
Passing the extensions "asp" and "aspx" will generate the following dictionary:
  • example/
  • example.asp
  • example.aspx
You can also use -f | --force-extensions switch to append extensions to every word in the wordlists (like DirBuster).
