Twitter Providing You Your Cracking Wordlist (via 7habitsofhighlyeffectivehackers)
A while ago the ISD podcast talked about a blog-post a guy had made. What this guy did is, he is using twitter to create a wordlist while searching for a keyword. This wordlist can then be very useful for cracking passwords. The script does a query for the latest tweets using your search criteria and uses all the tweets to create a wordlist. The original post can be found at: http://7habitsofhighlyeffectivehackers.blogspot.com.au/2012/05/using-twitter-to-build-password.html
The script is good fun and so easy its a bit funny. Using his idea, I improved his script a little bit allowing you to put in multiple keywords.
#!/bin/bash for var in "$@" do echo "Searching for $var, saving results in $1.txt" wget -q "http://search.twitter.com/search.json?q=$var&rpp;=500" cat search.json* | tr "," \n | grep "^"text" | cut -d""" -f4- | tr " " \n | sed s/"//g | sed s/^#//g | sed s/^@//g | grep -v "^http:" | grep -v "\\" >> $1.txt done cat $1.txt | sort | uniq > $1.unique.list echo "Results:" wc -l ./$1.unique.list rm -f search.json* rm -f $1.txt
