Summary0005038: dirbpy
DescriptionI made this tool it's almost the same thing as dirb. But my version is faster with a list of 3k words when i used dirb it takes around 7min and with dirbpy it takes 2:30min. It's very when you can save 5 minutes for a simple scan. I also have tests and right now im working on the CI. I also added dirbpy in pypi so we can use pip to install it.

Does the tool overlap functionality of other existing tools?
I know that my tool overlap dirb, but im just way faster. I think it could be a great change.

- [Name] - Dirbpy
- [Version] - 1.2.19
- [Homepage] - and

- [Licence] - MIT License
- [Description] - This is a new version of dirb but in python. This version is faster than the normal version in C because it uses thread. Dirbpy is a Web Content Scanner. It looks for hidden Web Objects. It basically works by launching a dictionary based attack against a web server and analizing the response. My goal was to make a tool more maintenable, with tests and CI. I think dirbpy should be added because it's way faster than dirb.
- [Dependencies] - This tool need python 3.6. This tool also have two pip dependencies argparse and requests.
- [Similar tools] - Dirb
- [Activity] - This project started a month ago. It's still active
- [How to install] - pip install dirbpy
- [How to use] - You can clone the SecLists and you can use Seclist/Discovery/Web-Content/common.txt.
dirbpy -f Seclist/Discovery/Web-Content/common.txt -u
You can specify the number of thread to use:
dirbpy -f Seclist/Discovery/Web-Content/common.txt -u -t 15
You can ignore directory to bruteforce:
dirbpy -f Seclist/Discovery/Web-Content/common.txt -u -i css
You can use proxy, it works well with burpsuite proxy:
dirbpy -f Seclist/Discovery/Web-Content/common.txt -u -p localhost:8080
You can ignore status code:
dirbpy -f Seclist/Discovery/Web-Content/common.txt -u -r 200
