Patator – Multi Purpose Brute Forcing Tool

Outsmart Malicious Hackers

Patator is a multi-purpose brute-forcer, with a modular design and a flexible usage. Basically the author got tired of using Medusa, Hydra, ncrack, metasploit auxiliary modules, nmap NSE scripts and the like because:

  • They either do not work or are not reliable (false negatives several times in the past)
  • They are slow (not multi-threaded or not testing multiple passwords within the same TCP connection)
  • They lack very useful features that are easy to code in python (eg. interactive runtime)

Basically you should give Patator a try once you get disappointed by Medusa, Hydra or other brute-force tools and are about to code your own small script because Patator will allow you to:

  • Not write the same code over and over
  • Run multi-threaded
  • Benefit for useful features such as the interactive runtime commands, response logging, etc.

Currently it supports the following modules:

  • ftp_login : Brute-force FTP
  • ssh_login : Brute-force SSH
  • telnet_login : Brute-force Telnet
  • smtp_login : Brute-force SMTP
  • smtp_vrfy : Enumerate valid users using the SMTP VRFY command
  • smtp_rcpt : Enumerate valid users using the SMTP RCPT TO command
  • http_fuzz : Brute-force HTTP/HTTPS
  • pop_passd : Brute-force poppassd (not POP3)
  • ldap_login : Brute-force LDAP
  • smb_login : Brute-force SMB
  • mssql_login : Brute-force MSSQL
  • oracle_login : Brute-force Oracle
  • mysql_login : Brute-force MySQL
  • pgsql_login : Brute-force PostgreSQL
  • vnc_login : Brute-force VNC
  • dns_forward : Forward lookup subdomains
  • dns_reverse : Reverse lookup subnets
  • snmp_login : Brute-force SNMPv1/2 and SNMPv3
  • unzip_pass : Brute-force the password of encrypted ZIP files
  • keystore_pass : Brute-force the password of Java keystore files

The name “Patator” comes from this tv interview clip – patator

Patator is NOT script-kiddie friendly, please read the README inside before reporting/complaining/asking me how to use this tool..

    Great tool! thx for sharing it…i will definitely try it…but i cannot understand what you mean that medusa, ncrack show false alarms…why this happens and how you alleviate it?

    By the way, what you gain by interactive runtime commands (e.g., change the password file?)

    Thanks again

    You should consider adding a wordlist compiler. http://z3n2g7wycmbzk27d.onion/splicex
