Patator – Multi Purpose Brute Forcing Tool

There are many tools available for cracking like, ncrack, brutus and THE hydra but today I want to share patator. Patator is a multi-purpose brute-forcer, with a modular design and a flexible usage.



Currently it supports the following modules:
* ftp_login : Brute-force FTP

* smtp_login : Brute-force SMTP
* smtp_vrfy : Enumerate valid users using the SMTP VRFY command
* smtp_rcpt : Enumerate valid users using the SMTP RCPT TO command
* http_fuzz : Brute-force HTTP/HTTPS
* pop_passd : Brute-force poppassd (not POP3)
* ldap_login : Brute-force LDAP
* smb_login : Brute-force SMB
* mssql_login : Brute-force MSSQL
* oracle_login : Brute-force Oracle
* mysql_login : Brute-force MySQL
* pgsql_login : Brute-force PostgreSQL
* vnc_login : Brute-force VNC
* dns_forward : Forward lookup subdomains
* dns_reverse : Reverse lookup subnets
* snmp_login : Brute-force SNMPv1/2 and SNMPv3
* unzip_pass : Brute-force the password of encrypted ZIP files
* keystore_pass : Brute-force the password of Java keystore files
