Happy Thanksgiving!

On the heels of Dr. Ullrich's diary regarding SCADA hacks published on Pastebin I thought I'd mention some Pastebin monitoring and recon resources that you may find useful.

One reader wrote in to say that you could use Google Alerts to monitor Pastebin for names and keywords of interest to you, but you may prefer a Google Custom Search instead. Configure it to monitor Pastebin and other similar sites; set names and keywords that are relevant for your needs.

Or, as Lenny pointed out in his July blog entry, you could use Andrew's PasteLert or PasteBin Scraper. And in case you weren't following along, Andrew --> Paterva --> Maltego --> Pastebin Transforms.

More than one SANS certification track curriculum discusses Maltego use for good reason. :-)

Any useful Pastebin crawling/scraping tactics you'd like to share? We await your comments or contact.
