Filebuster is a HTTP fuzzer / content discovery script with loads of features and built to be easy to use and fast! It uses one of the fastest HTTP classes in the world (of PERL) - Furl::HTTP. Also the thread modelling is optimized to run as fast as possible.

    To install filebuster,

    1. git clone the repository

    git clone

    2. Install Perl reuirements using cpan command utility

    cd filebuster

cpan -T install YAML Furl Benchmark Net::DNS::Lite List::MoreUtils IO::Socket::SSL URI::Escape HTML::Entities IO::Socket::Socks::Wrapper URI::URL Cache::LRU IO::Async::Timer::Periodic IO::Async::Loop

    3. After installation, we can run it using perl command interpreter as

    perl --help

for fuzzing of web url, we can use default wordlist provided by the tool or we can use our own with -w option.


perl -u

using filebuster, we could fuzz and identify sensitive or hidden files and directories in web app during pentesting.

look for 200, and 300 response from filebuster output.
