After 2 days in the lab I was drowning in infos (see my last post ).
I stumbled over some problems:
1) The tools are picky about how they get their ip ranges. Some want X.X.X.1-254 some want a single IP, some want /24 etc. Annoying.
2) Some Tools have HUGE LOGS .. and searching through them for one server is annoying
3) I suck at naming files scan1.txt .. helpful.
So I made this stupid script. Each tool gets added and I can activate or deactivate the tools via editing that script without messing up my filesystem with stupid names.
echo Making a IP list
nmap -sL $@ >./results/nmapiplist.txt
cat ./results/nmapiplist.txt |grep „Nmap sc“|cut -d “ “ -f 5 >./results/IP.txt
First stupid Hack …I “normalise” my IP input. Nmap is ok with any IP notation .. and the -sL option just converts that in a nice list. Grep etc and I have a nice file with all the IP. In this case I could do it in one line. But for other nmap scans I want to wait and have the nmap output. In this step I prepare my IP lists (more about that later).
for word in $(cat ./results/IP.txt);do mkdir ./results/$word ; done
Now I create a folder for each host ….
#Tool 1 (etc)
for word in $(cat ./results/IP.txt);do TOOLNAME $word>./results/$word/$word-TOOLNAME.txt & done
This spawns a copy of the tool for each IP. Not the most efficient way of doing it. But I get a good speed by running a lot in parallel. And every Tool puts the output in the folder of the host.
BEWARE: Only caveat is that you need to make separate IP lists for some tools. You don’t want an output file just saying:”No Host found”. So maybe first check if your IP list is online. In reality I have a bunch of different IP-List generated after step 1 and feed the tools only the list of candidates. So I reduce the false positives.
Waiting for a while .. some tools are slow to write their files ….
And then I remove every empty folder. So I have (ok some folders with empty files are left, but manageable) a nice structure. Every output sorted by tool.
echo Removing Empty folder
find ./ -type d -empty -delete
So much for this moment. Happy sailing …
