BBOT is an open-source free OSINT automation for Hackers

BBOT (Bighuge BLS OSINT Tool) is a modular, recursive OSINT framework that can execute the entire OSINT workflow in a single command.

BBOT is inspired by Spiderfoot but takes it to the next level with features like multi-target scans, lightning-fast asyncio performance, and NLP-powered subdomain mutations. It offers a wide range of functionality, including subdomain enumeration, port scanning, web screenshots, vulnerability scanning, and much more.

BBOT typically outperforms other subdomain enumeration tools by 20-25%.


BBOT accepts an unlimited number of targets via -t. You can specify targets either directly on the command line or in files (or both!). Targets can be any of the following:

  • DNS_NAME (
  • IP_RANGE (
  • URL (


Every BBOT scan gets a random, mildly-entertaining name like demonic_jimmy. Output for that scan, including scan stats and any web screenshots, are saved to a folder by that name in ~/.bbot/scans. The most recent 20 scans are kept, and older ones are removed.
