Nuclei + AI = Money 🤑

Here's how to use AI and nuclei to make money while you sleep 👇🧵
#bugbountytips #bugbounty Image
1. Run nuclei

First of all, if you can use a server or any kind of droplet (for Axiom, Hakq or Nuclei Cloud) that would be great!

Use them and run nuclei on a large number of subdomains.
See the final command in the next tweet 👇
2. Nuclei config

- max number of templates to be executed in parallel (-c)
- number of hosts to be analyzed in parallel per template (-bs)
- rate limit number (-rl)

Final command:
"nuclei -o output.txt -bs <> -c <> -rl <>"

How we, @vidocsecurity, bypass 401 and 403 - practical tips for fellow #bugbounty hunters <thread> Image
Try fuzzing HTTP method/user agents, you would be surprised how many times simply changing User-Agent to e.g. mobile specific client worked. Image
Play with forward/referer type of headers and their values. Try different variants, fuzz common custom headers that follow the pattern with different formats of localhost/custom IP address. Image

Here is how I was able to takeover the whole company's AWS infrastructure under 10 min after a new asset launch at @Hacker0x01 private program ImageImage
1. I was invited in the morning to a private program at H1 and the program updated the scope in the evening, So I decided to take a look to see if there is something to hack
2. I visited the main website in scope, to my surprise and thanks to @trufflesec Chrome extension Trufflehog which could be found here…

🧵NEW Thread🧵

Here is how I found the easiest SQLi and possible RCE in less than 30 min of recon and dorking

1. I was invited to a private program at @Hacker0x01 and the first thing I usually do is to look at the scope and see if it is a wildcard domain or just a small scope. ImageImage
2. Found that the program accepts all vulnerabilities related to their assets and of course third party assets are OOS
3. I used @leak_ix search engine at and used this dork [+target_name ++plugin:"GitConfigHttpPlugin"]
Note : this is used to search for already scanned websites that have /.git exposed

A lesser-known yet effective way of #bugbounty hunting is called "hacktivity" hunting. It involves bypassing fixes on disclosed reports found on @Hacker0x01's hacktivity page. This approach helped me score a $5k bounty! Here's how it works.👇

#InfoSec #CyberSecurity
With hacktivity hunting, the hard part - finding interesting behavior or insecure features - is already done for you. Your main role is to find a bypass.

For example, I found a bypass for a report on

The original report tried to restrict access to /admin by restricting the path in Nginx. However, I bypassed it using simple encoding - /%2561dmin. Endpoints required authentication, but I bypassed this by adding ".json" at the end.

Want to improve your network scanning skills with Nmap? 🕵️‍♀️💻

Check out these 5 quick tips to define targets, speed up scans, and scan with specific script categories! 🧵👇

#recon #recontips #AttackSurface #bugbounty #recontools #cybersecurity
1/5 Let's start with how to define targets.

Define targets for nmap scan by specifying IP addresses, IP ranges, domain names, or using a target list file.

$ nmap <IP1> <IP2> …
$ nmap
$ nmap <domain name>
$ nmap -iL <target list file>
2/5 The Ippsec scan for basic coverage.

Perform a comprehensive network scan using nmap's Ippsec initial scan.

Two factor Authentication bypass : ⚔️

- In applications registration , it required a mobile number for compulsory 2 factor authentication.
- Captured the request for mobile number addition
POST /mobile/add


- Now followed the registration normally by adding a mobile number.
- Now when I login to account it required an otp to proceed.
- Used an invalid otp like 111111 and intercepted the request.
- Changed the request PATH and BODY to earlier captured request.

- They we’re implementing checks for all internal api endpoints before entering otp but forget to add check for mobile number addition request.
- I was able to add a new number without entering otp
- This led to 2fa bypass.

😱 I asked ChatGPT "What are some of the unpopular SQL injection areas" and this is what it replied.


#bugbounty #cybersecurity #infosec #sqli
1. Error messages: Sometimes error messages can reveal important information about the application's database, such as table names or column names. An attacker can use this information to craft a SQL injection attack.
2. Search fields: Search fields are often overlooked when testing for SQL injection vulnerabilities, but they can be an easy target for attackers. In un-sanitized search queries, an attacker can inject SQL code to retrieve sensitive data from the database.

The team at @OpenAI just fixed a critical account takeover vulnerability I reported few hours ago affecting #ChatGPT.

It was possible to takeover someone's account, view their chat history, and access their billing information without them ever realizing it.

Breakdown below 👇
@OpenAI The vulnerability was "Web Cache Deception" and I'll explain in details how I managed to bypass the protections in place on

It's important to note that the issue is fixed, and I received a "Kudos" email from @OpenAI's team for my responsible disclosure.
While exploring the requests that handle ChatGPT's authentication flow I was looking for any anomaly that might expose user information.

The following GET request caught my attention:

Few months ago @osiryszzz and me discovered an interesting case of SQL injection on the @SynackRedTeam target which was black box testing.

During recon we noticed that there was an unrestricted file upload mechanism available to the any user. #bugbounty #bugbountytips /1
We noticed that the target was only processing the ZIP files but where the content unzipped wasn't clear which was preventing potential RCE or file overwrite via ZIP bombing. /2
However it appears that each file entry inside the ZIP file was added to the database after unpacking, which we wanted to see if it's possible to achieve SQL injection, by simply making file name with SQL injection payload. /3

HTTP Parameter Pollution @SecGPT has seen in its training. Image
1. ATO via password reset

The attacker manipulates the HTTP parameters of the password reset page to change the email address associated with the account; then use the password reset link => ATO.
2. Price manipulation in e-commerce platforms

The attacker manipulates the HTTP parameters of an e-commerce website to change the price of a product. The attacker can then purchase the product at a lower price than intended.

Unlocking the Secrets: Breaking Access Controls, the basics 👇

(from the AI model I'm currently training on security reports) Image
1. Direct object reference

This occurs when an attacker is able to access a resource directly by manipulating a parameter in the URL or form data.
2. Horizontal privilege escalation

This occurs when an attacker is able to access resources or perform actions that are intended for another user with the same level of access.

Often times to simplify my work I build scripts.👇

I recently discovered katana by @pdiscoveryio. And I turned this:

katana -d 5 -c 50 -p 20 -ef "ttf,woff,svg,jpeg,jpg,png,ico,gif,css" -u <https://tld> -cs "regex-to-restrict-to-tld-and-subdomains"

into this:

kata <tld>
1. The long command does the following:

-d => depth 5
-c => concurrency 50
-p => threads in parallel 20
-ef => exclude these
-u => supply the top level domain (i.e.
-cs => scope for this regex (limited to the tld and its subdomains)
2. You can download the kata bash script from my repo below. Use it as:

kata <tld>

Do me a favor and star the repo, thanks!
