DIRB – Domain Brute-forcing Tool

Find your website's Achilles' Heel


DIRB is a Web Content Scanner AKA a domain brute-forcing tool. It looks for existing (and/or hidden) Web Objects, it works by launching a dictionary based attack against a web server and analysing the responses.

DIRB - Domain Brute-forcing Tool

DIRB comes with a set of preconfigured attack word-lists for easy usage but you can use your custom word-lists. Also DIRB sometimes can be used as a classic CGI scanner, but do remember this is a content scanner not a vulnerability scanner.

There are other tools with similar functionalities such as:

Patator – Multi-threaded Service & URL Brute Forcing Tool
dirs3arch – HTTP File & Directory Brute Forcing Tool
DirBuster – Brute Force Directories & Files Names

And tools that can accomplish the same or similar things like:

Wfuzz v1.4 Released for Download – Bruteforcing & Fuzzing Web Applications

Usage
