Welcome to hacking a rise hacking a rise I am the Laughingman here with another post this time on getting emails of a domain using harvester this comes in handy for recon so lets get started

What is The Harvester

The objective of this program is to gather emails, subdomains, hosts, employee names, open ports and banners from different public sources like search engines, PGP key servers and SHODAN computer database.

This tool is intended to help Penetration testers in the early stages of the penetration test in order to understand the customer footprint on the Internet. It is also useful for anyone that wants to know what an attacker can see about their organization.

This is a complete rewrite of the tool with new features like:

Time delays between request
All sources search
Virtual host verifier
Active enumeration (DNS enumeration, Reverse lookups, TLD expansion)
Integration with SHODAN computer database, to get the open ports and banners
Save to XML and HTML
Basic graph with stats
New sources
