Update: Automater gets its own project page http://www.tekdefense.com/automater/
I must admit, I am in a bit of shock here. Never did I think I would actually get to have something I developed on the most popular distribution for security professionals. For those who do not know, Kali is the successor to Backtrack, this time fully debian based.
Installation of automater on Kali:
In order to ensure you are able to pull automater from Kali you must first update your repos. to do this simply:
Once updated you can install automater with the following command:
apt-get install automater
You can roll both of those commands into one if you like, as seen in the screenshot below.
It is that simple, installation complete. Of course if you are not on kali you can still grab the latest version of automater from Github.
Once installed via apt-get, automater is placed in /usr/bin/ which is in the PATH. So you can run automater from any directory.
Single target is an ip:
automater -t 22.214.171.124
Single target is a url/domain:
automater -t lovedacha.com
Single target is a shortened url:
automater -e bit.ly/XDlV1q
Target is several IPs and URLs/Domains listed in a file called hosts, outputting to another file called hosts.out:
automater -f hosts -o hosts.out
I have some really fun things planned for automater, such as adding a hash search function. I hope you enjoy.
