Chaosmap is an information gathering tool and DNS, Whois, and Web server scanner. It can be used to look up DNS names with a dictionary with or without using a salt. Salting for DNS means it will append numbers from 1-9 to the name in the dictionary with or without a - and _ or a leading 0. Salting for Web stuff will try double slashes and some directory traversal tricks. It performs reverse DNS lookups of a whole IP range (with optional Whois lookup) and dictionary scans for hidden paths on one Web server or a range of IP addresses. Optionally you can encode a path with URL encoding use Google dict lookup mode to find the path on Google and only query the Webserver if there are no search results. It can also extract email addresses from domains using a Google search or perform a list of Google Hacking queries on your domain.
Release Notes: It is now possible to specify a list of dictionaries and domains. A Google Hacks query mode was added along with more dictionaries.
Heapkeeper is a program to store, modify, and display email archives, especially mailing list archives. "Modifying" means that the archive is not really an archive, rather it is a living document like a wiki: it can be modified (and hopefully improved) by collaborators.
