Webantix - Evolution of Security

Webshot: Screenshot every web server during your pen test

During an internal pen test you can find a large number of internal web servers. Some of these servers are running on some weird and wonderful ports and are hidden away. Without having to manually visit each and every web page to find that low hanging fruit I have built a bash script to go off and do this automagically for you.

All you need is your Nessus scan exported as an NBE file. Once you have this file you can use webshot.sh to collect all of the web servers found during your nessus scan. To download this new script please find it at https://github.com/webantix/webshot. Once you have used it and have some feedback just let me know in the comments below or on the issues log on github.
