Birb finally released! (after almost 2 years...)
As a pentester, I've been mostly dissatisfied with the major web fuzzing / discovery tools.
With recurring issues ranging from "too tedious to setup (or use)", to simply "way too slow", about two years ago I started thinking I should maybe do something about it.
I decided to create a new tool, initially mostly for finding web directories, but with the ultimate intent of having a general web fuzzer. The requirements were clear:
* must be easy to run (single binary)
* simple to use with clear help
* flexible enough to address most scenarios
* quick to load a heavy wordlist
* efficiently leverage multi-tasking and HTTP pipelining
I picked the name "Birb" and got to work on the implementation - after about a week I finally had something functional.
Over the course of the following months, I continued perfecting the tool as more of my pentest colleagues started switching over to it for their own assessments.
It's been quite a while now that I use Birb on every pentest I have, and I started thinking that others may find it useful.
Today, Birb is seeing its first release at version 1.13.0. For now at least, Birb is not open source. I may release the source code at a later point in time but this is not certain yet.
Birb has a dedicated page with a download link as well as usage instructions. Go check it out: Birb - Faster Web Discovery
I will keep maintaining and upgrading Birb over time, so stay tuned for new features!
