Sam Spade Download – Network Investigation Tool for Windows


Sam Spade Download is below, it’s one of the oldest network security tools around in terms of a neat package containing a lot of stuff you need, it’s one of the first things I used when I got into information security and I was on a crusade against spammers and scammers.

Sam Spade Download - Network Investigation Tool for Windows


It has all kinds of useful tools in a neat graphical interface, a lot of them are available on the command line in Windows – but they aren’t so easy to use. It’s extremely useful for tracking spam or ‘UCE’ as it’s known (Unsolicited Commercial E-mail).

Features of Sam Spade

Some of the features included are:

  • Ping
  • NSlookup
  • Whois
  • IP block search
  • Dig
  • Traceroute
  • Finger
  • SMTP VRFY
  • Web browser keep-alive
  • DNS zone transfer
  • SMTP relay check
  • Usenet cancel check
  • Website download
  • Website search
  • Email header analysis
  • Email blacklist
  • Query Abuse address

Some other cool stuff it does is:

  • Each tool displays it’s output in it’s own window, and everything is multi-threaded so you don’t need to wait for one query to complete before starting the next one
  • Some functions are threaded still further to allow lazy reverse DNS lookups (never do a traceroute -n again)
  • The output from each query is hotlinked, so you can right click on an email address, IP address, hostname or internic tag to run another query on it
  • Appending the results of a query to the log window is a single button function
  • There’s a lot of online help, in both WinHelp and HTMLHelp formats. This includes tutorials, background information and links to online resources as well as the program manual itself
