It has been 6 years and dirsearch has now become the fuzzing tool that has the highest stars on Github:, the second is FFUF. But of course, we can't compare this tool with FFUF. Because FFUF is a fuzzer, which can brute-force anything in a single HTTP request. And dirsearch, it has been designed for directories brute-forcing only. It has a lot of the best techniques for directories brute-forcing, like 2-level auto-calibration, extensions, exclude extensions, reporting, recursion (it has a really good recursion work), brute-force a CIDR (IP range), sub-directories brute-forcing, User-Agent randomization, proxy randomization, suffixes and prefixes, wordlist formats, ... It also has an impressive performance and nice output! Many hackers now are using dirsearch, so I think you should add dirsearch into your tool package so users can install easier.

Thank BTW!

Hello folks! How you doing?

Is there any feature you recommend for this tool? The latest version supports NTLM auth, but not passing the hash. What do you think?
