theHarvester v1.5 released

theHarvester is a tool for gathering e-mail accounts from different public sources (search engines, pgp key servers). Is a really simple tool, but very effective.

Version 1.5

  • Fixed Bing search engine
  • Fixed Linkedin

The sources supported are:

  • Google - emails
  • Bing search - emails
  • Pgp servers - emails
  • Linkedin - user names

Some examples:

Searching emails accounts for the domain microsoft.com, it will work with the first 500 google results:

./theharvester.py -d microsoft.com -l 500 -b google

Searching emails accounts for the domain microsoft.com in a PGP server, here it’s not necessary to specify the limit.

./theharvester.py -d microsoft.com -b pgp

Searching for user names that works in the company microsoft, we use google as search engine, so we need to specify the limit of results we want to use:

./theharvester.py -d microsoft -l 200 -b linkedin
