Scilla – Information Gathering tool

Information Gathering tool


Scilla is an old city in the southern part of Costa Viola. || Scilla – Information Gathering tool
It is also the name of a sea-dwelling monster that appears in Greek mythology and Odysseus.

Skila is the Greek word for “skilla”.
This skyla is commonly spoken in pairs with a demon named “Charibdis”.
Charybdis is Italian for charybdis.

It is a well-known legend that Stela and Charibdis live on both sides of the Strait of Messina. Charibdis was the daughter of Posidon and Gaia and was an extraordinary eater. At one point, he ate a whole herd of livestock and was transformed into a demon by Zeus and went into the sea.

Since then, Chabbdis has been rotating three times a day, inhaling and exhaling large amounts of seawater. If a ship passes by, it is a ship. Talking of Odysseus and the demons of the sea, the story of sirens is famous. The siren is a demon who listens to the sound of singing and is confused and eventually wrecks the ship. After encountering this siren, Odysseus encounters Chardabis and Skyla.

A monster that swallows a piece or anything, and a monster that eats people with one piece or six animal heads. Sheribis manages to get through, but Skyla attacks and kills six crew members.

Scilla - Information Gathering tool

So Scilla is actually only a town or a monster? NO.
Scilla is an information gathering tool.
This tool allows you easily to search for DNS records, Directories, Subdomains and open ports. If you are familiar with nmap, gobuster, dirsearch, sublist3r.. etc, you know what I’m talking about.

Information Gathering tool

Scilla is a Command Line tool written entirely on Golang (basically due to the power of goroutines).
Before installing Scilla you need to install Go. Follow This to install Golang on your machine.
Then, I’m talking about Installation on Kali Linux but it’s the same for all the Linux-based OS.
You need to use git, just execute this line of code inside a shell:

git clone;cd scilla;go get;sudo make linux

Then just type scilla to see if the installation process ended successfully
For any doubt please visit the official repository or my website to reach Edoardo Ottavianelli.

Basic functionalities

If you type scilla help you will see all the commands and the options (required and not) in scilla.
Also scilla examples is useful because you can see all the commands you can execute.
There are 5 main subcommands in Scilla:
DNS Enumeration
scilla dns -target

Directories Enumeration
scilla dir -target

Port Enumeration
scilla port -target

Subdomain Enumeration
scilla subdomain -target

Full Report (All 4 commands above)
scilla report -target

Advanced functionalities

We will do some exaples. Please be aware that you can mix all the options belonging to a subcommand (e.g. you can use in the same time the output as html and a well defined port range..)

DNS Enumeration
In DNS enumeration we can output the results as a txt document or html document.

scilla dns -o txt -target
scilla dns -o html -target

Directories Enumeration
In Directories enumeration we can output the results as a txt document or html document.

scilla dir -o txt -target
scilla dir -o html -target

We can use also a custom wordlist.

scilla dir -w rockyou.txt -target

Maybe in some cases it’s useful to ignore some type of responses by the response code.
We can ignore array of response codes in this way:

scilla dir -i 500,503 -target

Or by an entire class of response codes (1,2,3,4,5). scilla dir -i 5,4** -target

Port Enumeration
In Port Enumeration we can select a single port to scan or a range of ports:

To scan a single port:

scilla port -p 80 -target

To scan a range of ports from the first to a defined ending port:

scilla port -p -1000 -target

To scan a range of ports from the defined first port to the last (65635):

scilla port -p 3493- -target

To scan a range of ports from the defined first port to the defined ending port:

scilla port -p 22-80 -target

In Port enumeration we can output the results as a txt document or html document.

scilla port -o txt -target
scilla port -o html -target

Subdomain Enumeration
The explanation is exactly the same as Directories enumeration:

scilla subdomain -target
scilla subdomain -w wordlist.txt -target
scilla subdomain -o txt -target
scilla subdomain -o html -target
scilla subdomain -i 400 -target
scilla subdomain -i 4** -target

Full Report (All 4 commands above)
Default (all ports, so 1-65635)

scilla report -target target.domain

Specifying ports range

scilla report -p 20-90 -target target.domain

Specifying starting port (until the last one)

scilla report -p 20- -target target.domain

Specifying ending port (from the first one)

scilla report -p -90 -target target.domain

Specifying single port

scilla report -p 80 -target target.domain

Specifying output format (txt)

scilla report -o txt -target target.domain

Specifying output format (html)

scilla report -o html -target target.domain

Specifying directories wordlist

scilla report -wd dirs.txt -target target.domain

Specifying subdomains wordlist

scilla report -ws subdomains.txt -target target.domain

Specifying status codes to be ignored in directories scanning

scilla report -id 500,501,502 -target target.domain

Specifying status codes to be ignored in subdomains scanning

scilla report -is 500,501,502 -target target.domain

Specifying status codes classes to be ignored in directories scanning

scilla report -id 5,4 -target target.domain

Specifying status codes classes to be ignored in subdomains scanning

scilla report -is 5,4 -target target.domain

  2. Cool website!

    My name’s Eric, and I just found your site – – while surfing the net. You showed up at the top of the search results, so I checked you out. Looks like what you’re doing is pretty cool.

    But if you don’t mind me asking – after someone like me stumbles across, what usually happens?

    Is your site generating leads for your business?

    I’m guessing some, but I also bet you’d like more… studies show that 7 out 10 who land on a site wind up leaving without a trace.

    Not good.

    Here’s a thought – what if there was an easy way for every visitor to “raise their hand” to get a phone call from you INSTANTLY… the second they hit your site and said, “call me now.”

    You can –

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    CLICK HERE to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s why we built out our new SMS Text With Lead feature… because once you’ve captured the visitor’s phone number, you can automatically start a text message (SMS) conversation.

    Think about the possibilities – even if you don’t close a deal then and there, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Wouldn’t that be cool?

    CLICK HERE to discover what Talk With Web Visitor can do for your business.
