Backtrack 4: Information Gathering: Dmitry – Deepmagic Information Gathering Tool

Dmitry or Deepmagic Information Gathering Tool is an all in one host information tool included in Backtrack 4′s Information Gathering section. Personally I prefer doing most info gathering using tools built into Linux however it is nice to run a tool like this in the background and come back later if you are multi-tasking. Before getting into the details of Dmitry please see this article relating to a Segmentation Fault that can occur with Dmitry on Backtrack 4.

Dmitry – Deepmagic Information Gathering Tool Details:

So Dmitry can perform numerous tasks based on the switches provided including a couple whois lookups, netcraft.com data (OS info, uptime info, web server info), subdomain search, email address search, and various TCP port scan options. As you can see letting this fly against a target host will return various information in one swoop. Below is an example using Dmitry against the louisville.edu domain/host.

Dmitry Example Against Louisville.edu Domain/Host:

As you can see there is a wealth of information regarding he louisville.edu domain as well as the specific host we hit serving the louisville.edu domain. There isn’t a whole lot to write about such a tool since it really just requires reading what he switches do and letting it fly. For more information on Dmitry type “man dmitry” from a Backtrack terminal window.
