source bin/activate
python dig.py --help

Usage

<div class="highlight highlight-source-shell notranslate position-relative overflow-auto" data-snippet-clipboard-copy-content="usage: dig.py [-h] [-e EXCLUDE] [-g GOLD] -d DIRECTORY [-r RECURSIVE] [-l LOG] optional arguments: -h, –help show this help message and exit -e EXCLUDE, –exclude EXCLUDE JSON file containing extension exclusions -g GOLD, –gold GOLD JSON file containing the gold to search for -d DIRECTORY, –directory DIRECTORY Directory to search for gold -r RECURSIVE, –recursive RECURSIVE Search directory recursively? -l LOG, –log LOG Log file to save output” dir=”auto”>

usage: dig.py [-h] [-e EXCLUDE] [-g GOLD] -d DIRECTORY [-r RECURSIVE] [-l LOG]

optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-e EXCLUDE, --exclude EXCLUDE
JSON file containing extension exclusions
-g GOLD, --gold GOLD JSON file containing the gold to search for
-d DIRECTORY, --directory DIRECTORY
Directory to search for gold
-r RECURSIVE, --recursive RECURSIVE
Search directory recursively?
-l LOG, --log LOG Log file to save output

Example Usage

Gold Digger will recursively go through all folders and files in search of content matching items listed in the gold.json file. Additionally, you can leverage an exclusion file called exclusions.json for skipping files matching specific extensions. Provide the root folder as the --directory flag.

An example structure could be:

You would provide the following command to parse all 3 account reports:

Results

The tool will create a log file containg the scanning results. Due to the nature of using regular expressions, there may be numerous false positives. Despite this, the tool has been proven to increase productivity when processing thousands of files.
