Interactsh : An OOB Interaction Gathering Server And Client Library

Interactsh is an Open-Source Solution for Out of band Data Extraction, A tool designed to detect bugs that cause external interactions, For example – Blind SQLi, Blind CMDi, SSRF, etc.

Features

  • DNS/HTTP/SMTP Interaction support
  • CLI Client / Web Dashboard support
  • AES encryption with zero logging
  • Automatic ACME based Wildcard TLS w/ Auto Renewal
