Background

This tool searches the Internet for PDF and Microsoft Office files in the given domain, and extracts the metadata from those files. This metadata often contains the names or aliases of the document's authors or contributors, which can be used to guess valid e-mail addresses for use in client exploits.

Limitations

This tool can only find documents which are indexed by major search engines.

This tool cannot extract metadata from documents which are password protected.

This tool supports PDF files encrypted using the standard security handler V2 and prior.

The target parameter is unused but must still be a licensed target.
