Well, guys today we are going to look at a very nice open source tool for information gathering.
“Discover” tool is used to automate various pentesting tasks. You can find a lot of information(both passive and active) with this tool which you can later use in your pentesting scenario. It provides a well detailed report that you can present to an organization if need be.
Here are the steps to install “Discover” tool.
- git clone https://github.com/leebaird/discover /opt/discover/
- All scripts must be ran from this location.
- cd /opt/discover/
Once all the updates have been installed, you can then run the following command to start Discover
I recommend you do a passive scan. This will gather the publicly available information and not land you in legal actions.
The tool will run. This takes a while, so be patient. Once completed, you will be provided with an htm file that will contain all the discovered information.

Happy hacking. Be responible!!!
