  • Tool - HTTrack

    Tool: HTTrack
    Use: Reconnaissance and Social Engineering.
    Version: 3.48-24
    OS: Linux
    Vendor/Author: Xavier Roche <[email protected]>
    Status: Active
    Description: Copy websites to a local directory.

    From the MAN page:
    HTTrack allows you to download a World Wide Web site from the Internet to a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server to your computer. HTTrack arranges the original site's relative link-structure. Simply open a page of the "mirrored" website in your browser, and you can browse the site from link to link, as if you were viewing it online. HTTrack can also update an existing mirrored site, and resume interrupted downloads.
    This tool can generate a local copy of a web site which is very useful when setting up a social engineering or Phishing attack. The tool is very complex and has a wealth of options and features affecting all aspects of the inner workings.
    It seems to exist in a version with a web based UI, webHTTrack, and a graphical version, WinHTTrack.
