Hi all out there.

It is time to take a look at sn1per. A tool that automate opensource stuff for us.

As always we start with the steps

  1. Install some os in my kase running kali
  2. Get the docker file
  3. Build
  4. Run

sn1per installation


docker build -t sn1per .

Below is gonna take some time to complete go get some coffe.

Start up sn1per docker container

docker run -it sn1per /bin/bash

Install vim and dnsutil

In my installation these where missing, so I installed them.

apt-get install vim
apt-get install dnsutils

Add api plugins
When I did this I edit /root/.sniper.conf file

What does this application automate for us?

  • Dirsearch
  • Smuggler HTTP http reqest smuggling
  • Nuclei scan
  • NMAP scans
  • Osint
  • more stuff that you will need to find out for your self

Run it

Read the documentation but the run command for me was:

./sniper -t

When I tried it, I did make the web server crash and the webserver lost the connection to the database. 😦
So be careful what you run against.

Something to think about when doing a scan.

If you run against a machine with fail2ban installed, you will get banned.
There where false postive also when I ran it on a machine that had ssh on it.

When the scannings is done, you will get a directory structure that shows your findings.

My thoughts

Is there another way, without this. Yes there is, you can run every tool manually. Or make you own scripts to automate stuff. Then you will have more control, but you will burn a couple of hours on that. But as a educational purpose, why not create a script by your self?
But they are doing a great job putting it together. I hope to get the funds to buy the pro version!

After that I hope get a post up compering the free versions vs paid version!

Here are some useful information that I got when contacting them
