ParamSpider : Mining Parameters From Dark Corners Of Web Archives

ParamSpider is a mining parameters from dark corners of web archives.


  • Finds parameters from web archives of the entered domain.
  • Finds parameters from subdomains as well.
  • Gives support to exclude urls with specific extensions.
  • Saves the output result in a nice and clean manner.
  • It mines the parameters from web archives (without interacting with the target host)


Note : Use python 3.7+

$ git clone
$ cd ParamSpider
$ pip3 install -r requirements.txt
$ python3 –domain

Usage Options

1 – For a simple scan [without the –exclude parameter]
$ python3 –domain
->Output ex :

2 – For excluding urls with specific extensions
$ python3 –domain –exclude php,jpg,svg

3 – For finding nested parameters
$ python3 –domain –level high
->Output ex :

4 – Saving the results
$ python3 –domain –exclude php,jpg –output hackerone.txt

5 – Using with a custom placeholder text (default is FUZZ), e.g. don’t add a placeholder
$ python3 –domain –placeholder FUZZ2

6 – Using the quiet mode (without printing the URLs on screen)
$ python3 –domain –quiet

7 – Exclude subdomains [for parameters from domain+subdomains, do not specify this argument]

ParamSpider+GF (for massive pwnage)

Lets say you have already installed the tool and now you want to filter out the juicy parameters from plethora of parameters. No worries you can easily do it using GF(by tomnomnom) .

Note : Make sure you have go properly installed on your machine .

Follow along this :

$ go get -u
$ cp -r $GOPATH/src/ ~/.gf

Note : Replace ‘/User/levi/go/bin/gf’ with the path where gf binary is located in your system.

$ alias gf=’/User/levi/go/bin/gf’
$ cd ~/.gf/

Note : Paste JSON files( in ~/.gf/ folder

Now run ParamSpider and navigate to the output directory

$ gf redirect domain.txt //for potential open redirect/SSRF parameters
$ gf xss domain.txt //for potential xss vulnerable parameters
$ gf potential domain.txt //for xss + ssrf + open redirect parameters
$ gf wordpress domain.txt //for wordpress urls

[More GF profiles to be added in future]


$ python3 –domain –exclude woff,css,js,png,svg,php,jpg –output bugcrowd.txt

Note : As it fetches the parameters from web archive data ,so chances of false positives are high.
