New releases and updates

SpiderFoot 2.8.0 released

SpiderFoot 2.8.0 is a big release including new functionality, data sources and bug fixes.

E-mail address targeting

SpiderFoot 2.8.0 introduces the ability to footprint e-mail addresses, so you can now perform scans of e-mail addresses in the same way as you would currently scan a domain, hostname, IP address or netblock.

New Modules / Data Sources

This release introduces five new modules and an update to sfp_sharedip to include an additional data source:

  • sfp_threadcrowd: Searches ThreatCrowd for potentially malicious IP addresses, subnets, domains and e-mail addresses.

  • sfp_psbdmp: Searches for e-mail addresses or domain names which may have been mentioned in pastebin credential dumps.

  • sfp_similar: A re-vamp of the old module that relied upon third party data sources, instead this module relies only on DNS and will look for common misspellings of your target domain, identifying potential domain squatters or phishers. e.g. if your target is, this module will also look to see if,, etc. resolve.

  • sfp_wikileaks: Searches the WikiLeaks archives for mentions of e-mail addresses and domain names.

  • sfp_binstring: When certain binary file formats are found (e.g. JPEGs), this module will search them for ASCII strings, which may be revealing of software used, author information, etc.

  • sfp_sharedip: Updated to also use HackerTarget’s API for passive DNS, adding to the current Robtex and Bing sources.

Enhancements / Bug fixes

  • XSS vulnerability when stopping a scan resolved (thanks to the kind folks at Netsparker)
