[project]Perform Footprinting using Various Footprinting Tools

  1. Copy the source from the GitHub

2. Launch recon-ng

4. Create my shoudan account.

5. Add shoudan_api keys

6. Load a module (recon/domains-hosts/shoudan_hostname)

7. Set the target source. (this case, bbc.com)

8. Implement “run” command to gather information about bbc.com

The result

In my case, 0 host shows up related to the source “BBC.COM”

The summary

It is essential to recognize that many footprinting tools help malicious attackers gather the information of the organizations.

Therefore, blue teams need to minimize the companies’ vulnerabilities to reduce the risks to be exploited.
