openSquat – Detection Of Phishing Domains And Domain Squatting. Supports Permutations Such As Homograph Attack, Typosquatting And Bitsquatting

What is openSquat

openSquat is an opensource Intelligence (OSINT) security tool to identify cyber squatting threats to specific companies or domains, such as:

  • Phishing campaigns
  • Domain squatting
  • Typo squatting
  • Bitsquatting
  • IDN homograph attacks
  • Doppenganger domains
  • Other brand/domain related scams

It does support some key features such as:

  • Automatic newly registered domain updating (once a day)
  • Levenshtein distance to calculate word similarity
  • Fetches active and known phishing domains (Phishing Database project)
  • IDN homograph attack detection
  • Integration with VirusTotal
  • Integration with Quad9 DNS service
  • Use different levels of confidence threshold to fine tune
  • Save output into different formats (txt, JSON and CSV)
  • Can be integrated with other threat intelligence tools and DNS sinkholes

This is an opensource project so everyone’s welcomed to contribute.

Note: Both forks do not contain all openSquat features.

How to Install

 git clone https://github.com/atenreiro/opensquat
pip install -r requirements.txt

Make sure you have Python 3.6+ and pip3 in your environment

How to Update

To update your current version, just type the following commands inside the openSquat directory:

 git pull
pip install -r requirements.txt

The “pip install” is just to make sure no new libs were added with the new upgrade.

Usage Examples

Edit the “keywords.txt” with your customised keywords to hunt.

To Do / Roadmap

  • Integration with VirusTotal (VT) for subdomains validation
  • Integratration with VirusTotal (VT) for malware detection
  • Use certificate transparency
  • Homograph detection done
  • Improve code quality from B to A grade (codacy)
  • PEP8 compliance
  • AND logical condition for keywords search (e.g: goole+login) – Thanks to Steff T.
  • Add documentation
