Hey Folks, in this tutorial we are going to talk about an OSINT or information gathering tool called “Scylla“. Scylla is an OSINT tool developed in Python 3.6. Scylla lets users perform advanced searches on Instagram & Twitter accounts, websites/webservers, phone numbers, and names. Scylla also allows users to find all social media profiles (main platforms) assigned to a certain username. Scylla has shodan support so you can search for devices all over the internet, it also has in-depth geolocation capabilities. You can continue reading about this tool from here.
Let’s take a look 😛 !!
Scylla Tool Installation
There is only a limited option to install this tool, that is why we have to choose the prescribed procedure to install this tool. Alright 😛 !! Let’s follow the instructions to install this tool. First we download this tool via git clone command, go to the directory of this tool and install some requirements by using the python utility.
git clone https://www.github.com/DoubleThreatSecurity/Scylla
sudo python3 -m pip install -r requirments.txt
Nice 😛 !! As you can see how easily we have installed this tool in our system.
python3 scylla.py --help
Spot Instagram Users
It is very easy to find out about any Instagram profile by just giving it its name in the command. You can even get an idea of how this tool provides so much useful information about any profile.
python3 scylla.py --instagram < username >
Good 😛 !! As you may have seen above it gave us a link that shows the actual profile of that user.
Also, if you have no information about the victim profile, you can use the following command to search his profile on various social media platforms and it will easily locate the profile and tell you where the victim profile is available.
python3 scylla.py --username < username >
Spot Phone Number
Through this facility you can only get some information of the victim’s mobile number such as : CN, Location, IF etc but not completely.
python3 scylla.py -r +919891xxxxxx
That’s all for today and in this article we have covered all the features of this tool which could have been possible.
