Back after a hitaus – this short post is about Prowl an open source Python script that was released a few days ago. It helps you scrape LinkedIn data of a company, which can be used for OSINT purposes. It leverages the Yahoo! search engine for it’s search. After it is done searching for the jobs, it then uses the Indeed job search engine to look for jobs in the company you are searching for.
It also has a capability to search for the discovered user in the have i been pwned? database for possible password leaks. The script is simple and uses requests, BeautifulSoup, re, argparse, string, time, urllib2, json, os and GitPython for auto-updates. In my tests, the script was lightning fast and installed easily on Kali Linux. Usage is also pretty simple –
python prowl.py -c "Microsoft" -e "(FirstName)(LastName)@microsoft.com"
Installation is simple. Check out the Git repository from here. Then simply run:
pip install -r requirements.txt
