Fuzz Faster U Fool Tool to Fuzzing Get and Post data


Ffuf – Fuzz Faster U Fool is a great tool used for fuzzing. It has become really popular lately with bug bounty hunters. Ffuf is used for fuzzing Get and Post data but can also be used for finding hidden files, directories or subdomains.


Installation and usage

  • Clone the github repository and change the current directory

  • Install golang

  • Run the script with the FUZZ word, url and a wordlist at least

Then you can run a directory discovery which finishes the whole 200k wordlists under 30 seconds which is an impressive performance:

  • go run main.go -u -w /usr/share/dirb/wordlists/common.txt

The tool is also great when you have to test for vulnerabilities: sqli, xss, command injection, ldap injection, nosqli, etc. For example if you come across a search get parameter you could use this command to test for sqli (if you expect a different response length where you get a sql error.


o define the test case for ffuf, use the keyword FUZZ anywhere in the URL (-u), headers (-H), or POST data (-d).
