Two kits favored by red teams and penetration testers have been updated recently, namely hashcat and SpiderFoot. Hashcat and SpiderFoot together read like a Robert Redford/Paul Newman movie title (yes, I'm that old). :-) Thanks to handler Rob Vandenbrink for the hashcat call out.
Hashcat v3.10: The world's fastest password cracker, and the world's first and only in-kernel rule engine
SpiderFoot 2.7.0: An open source intelligence automation tool to automate the process of gathering intelligence about a given target: IP address, domain name, hostname or network subnet. SpiderFoot can be used offensively, i.e. as part of a black-box penetration test to gather information about the target or defensively to identify what information your organisation is freely providing for attackers to use against you.
