    Maltego drives me crazy too, brother. They actually gave me a free 14 day trial back when I first got into OSINT. Honestly wish I had waited until now. I had no idea what I was doing and it was ultimately a waste of time

    I heard that the PenTest+ is a lot of OSINT, will this video help with that?

    Very well done, and a great overview. But, I'm very surprised that you couldn't get OpenVAS to work. For me, it works very well, and I actually prefer it over Nessus.

    Not sure why you said that you can find the leaked password or info of the pwned website. It doesn't give you the leaked passwords lol 😆

    Spiderfoot is pretty decent. The web portion is better than the command line

  • Mitch Malik 4 months ago

    Spiderfoot's localhost GUI helps a LOT.

    Really quality video,I am impressed very much by it.
    That s why i was shocked how could you missed the lampyre e-mail/phone number/ etc. osint.
    Yes, If somebody do a research about it,the lampyre from owner side kinda shady,so lets just say if you want to osint about high rank russian citizens,definitely DO NOT DO IT ( or anything that could be interesting for the russian government 🙂 ).

    From personal POV,osint about regular citizens its an easily accesable and operatable website, example: after subscription for a phone number search you will get a full name and facebook,linkedin,instagram credidental ,moreover you can search after pictures but it is on testing phase,but still quite developed.

    It s not expensive,but I constantly wondering why are not everybody talkin' about lampyre how accesible and powerfull is that
