SubBrute is a community driven project with the goal of creating the fastest, and most accurate subdomain enumeration tool. Some of the magic behind SubBrute is that it uses open resolvers as a kind of proxy to circumvent DNS rate-limiting ( https://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/alerts/TA13-088A ). This design also provides a layer of anonymity, as SubBrute does not send traffic directly to the target's name servers.
Whats new in v1.1?
This version merges pull requests from the community; changes from JordanMilne, KxCode and rc0r is in this release. In SubBrute 1.1 we fixed bugs, improved accuracy, and efficiency. As requested, this project is now GPLv3.
Accuracy and better wildcard detection:
The 'names.txt' list was created using some creative Google hacks with additions from the community. SubBrute has a feature to build your own subdomain lists by matching sub-domains with regular expression and sorting by frequency of occurrence:
names.txt contains 31298 subdomains. subs_small.txt was stolen from fierce2 which contains 1896 subdomains. If you find more subdomains to add, open a bug report or pull request and I'll be happy to add them.
No install required for Windows, just cd into the 'windows' folder:
Easy to install: You just need http://www.dnspython.org/ and python2.7 or python3. This tool should work under any operating system: bsd, osx, windows, linux...
(On a side note giving a makefile root always bothers me, it would be a great way to install a backdoor...)
Under Ubuntu/Debian all you need is:
On other operating systems you may have to install dnspython manually:
Easy to use:
Tests multiple domains:
or a newline delimited list of domains:
Also keep in mind that subdomains can have subdomains (example: _xmpp-server._tcp.gmail.com):
