General Questions

How to setup the Osmedeus?

Please check out installation guide here

How can I determine which workflow to run for my target?

Please check out running your first scan here

I got some error while installing Osmedeus on my machine. How can I fix it?

Maybe run sudo su first and then run rm -rf ~/osmedeus-base ~/.osmedeus and then run the install script again to have a clean installation.

I got some Permission denied errors while installing Osmedeus on my machine even with sudo. How can I fix it?

Please run rm -rf ~/osmedeus-base ~/.osmedeus to clean up the old installation. Then run sudo su first and run the install script again.

What is the specification required to run Osmedeus?

I recommend using VPS since it takes a lot of network bandwidth, the minimum spec would be 1 CPU 2GB RAM. You can of course increase or decrease the threads in the workflow to make it work in any spec

How can I update my Osmedeus? Or having a clean install?

Just run the install script again and it will be updated. Or run rm -rf /root/osmedeus-base /root/.osmedeus first then run the install script if you want to have a fresh install.

Where can I find the result after the scan done?

All of your scan data store at ~/workspaces-osmedeus/

How do I know which workflow to run?

You can follow this page to see what workflow is fit to your workflow.

Is there any new or exclusive workflow in premium package compare to the publiic version?

Basically, the count of workflows is similar in both the premium and community versions. The main difference lies in the specific parts of each workflow. For instance, there are many filters and additional techniques in the premium version to find more valuable assets and get rid of unnecessary ones. Lastly, I personally perform manual verification on the premium version and it also receives more frequent updates.

How can I conduct a standard scan while excluding specific domains that are considered out of scope?

Currently, I don't have any Out of scope handle but you can run the flow that discovery the subdomain first with these commands

osmedeus scan -f fast -t
osmedeus scan -f subdomain-enum -t
then get the list of subdomain, filtering OOS by yourself then store it in a file like list-of-domains.txt finally run the scan on with a list of domains osmedeus scan -f domains -t list-of-domains.txt

I got some errors while running the scan, what should I do?

You can use osmedeus health command to check if the install is okay or not.

Where I can get a live support?

You can Join Discord Server here to see if anyone can help

I have an awesome idea, How can I implement it in Osmedeus?

You can Join Discord Server here or contact me via here to see if it worth to add.

I ran the scan but there's no vulnerability found?

It's simply that there's no vulnerability. It very much depends on your target.

How can I update the vulnerability database of Jaeles or Nuclei?

Just run the command osmedeus update --vuln.

How do I halt my scan and ensure that all the smaller tasks within it have been stopped?

Just press Crtl + C to stop the scan. Then run osmedeus utils ps --osm --kill to kill all the sub process.

Why was my scan stuck at portscan?

It will stay there because it got a sudo password prompt. Some special tools require root permission to run like nmap. Make sure you allow nmap can be run without sudo password prompt.

Why did my scan such as vulnerability scanning, port scanning, or content discovery take so long?

It's probably because the thing you put in was really big. Think about trying to run the content discovery againt 2000 different hosts. That's why it takes a long time.

It's probably because your cloud provider or your home network limit your portscan. Try to run with --debug then you can manually check with the raw command that the portscan module actually running.

What is the difference between this flow/module to other flow/module?
  1. Read the flow/module files to see what difference in them.
  2. Seriously, Read the flow/module files.
  3. Remember that you were warned twice about reading read the flow/module files.
  4. Just use diff comparison of each flow/module file and see what difference field mean here
Where should I put my token (Github, Shodan, etc)?

All you need to do is follow this guide to setup the token

How can I setup to send notification?

All you need to do is follow this guide to setup notification

I found a new tool that is pretty awesome. Can you add it in Osmedeus?

Yes, just follow this guide to add it to your workflow.

Why Osmedeus didn't find any vulnerability even when I scan it with the intentionally vulnerable app?

Again it very much depends on your target. Osmedeus really shine on large scope targets, not the single intentionally vulnerable web app. Just scan some random VDP then you will see the result. The reason it won't find any vulnerability on the intentionally vulnerable app is the vulnscan module won't support it. But you're always welcome to customize the workflow to do so.

Is it support Proxy?

Nope, natively it doesn't support proxy. But since the design of the tool is running other 3rd tools and a lot of them doesn't support proxy by default. I've already consider proxychains but it makes it extremely slow and broke a lot of things.

I run the cloud scan with -c 1 why it's only spin up 1 vps?

It's only run in 1 vps because you only have 1 target run like osmedeus cloud -c 2 -f general -t -t will run 2 vps.

I accidentally terminated the scan. How can I restart or resume it?

Just run the command again to start a fresh scan or run the same command with --resume flag to resume the scan if any reports file exist.

How can I stop the scan? Is there any way to resume it?

Yes, just press Crtl + C to stop the scan. To resume the scan you can run the same command with additional --resume flag but it's depend on reports: section in previous module complete or not to actually resume the scan.

I stop the scan with Ctrl+C in the middle of it. Is it possible to create a summary report?

Yes, you can the osmedeus report command will check the runtime file in workspace and will show what store in there.

How can I delete a workspace?

Just delete the workspace folder which is located at ~/workspaces-osmedeus/<target-name-here> or run the command osmedeus config delete -w <workspace-name-here>.

Why you use multiple tools for the same purpose in your workflow?

I choose some tools over the others because they gave more accurate results. You can always manually test to see the result then decide which one is better. Of course, you are always welcome to customize your workflow to do so.

Does the X scan run tool Y or not?
  1. Read the flow and module files to determine what a step actually runs
  2. Seriously, read the flow and module files.
  3. Remember that you were warned twice about reading the flow and module files.
  4. Search for the tool command in the workflow folder to confirm whether it is used or not (e.g: rg -F 'jaeles' ~/osmedeus-base/workflow)

What is the {{Binaries}} in the workflow?

{{Binaries}} will be replaced with ~/osmedeus-base/binaries/ where I store all the binaries for running the workflow . If you already install it in your $PATH environment variable then you can just use the tool directly like your-tool -t {{Target}} instead of {{Binaries}}/your-tool -t {{Target}}

What is the {{Data}} in the workflow?

{{Data}} will be replaced with ~/osmedeus-base/data/ where I store all the config and wordlist for running the workflow. You can always use the absolute path like /root/osmedeus-base/data/wordlist/your-wordlist.txt instead of {{Data}}/wordlist/your-wordlist.txt

I already setup my notification, How do I know it will work?

Please run the command here osmedeus scan -m ~/osmedeus-base/workflow/test/noti.yaml -t to test your notification setup. If you received a message in your channel then it works.

My test notification is working fine, but I still didn't get any noti on the real scan?

It won't show any noti vuln data in your channel simply mean it's not found any vuln. Try to grab some urls with you know is for sure vulnerablie like Jenkins or Jira then run it with urls workflow like this osmedeus scan -f urls -t list-of-vulnerable-url.txt and you will see.

Why my home router crashed when running Osmedeus?

Again, I'm always recommend to run Osmedeus with vps to avoid these issue. If you really want to change the amass config then go to ~/osmedeus-base/data/amass-config/basic-config.yaml and edit the maximum_dns_queries, and also change some massdns rate on the probing module.

Where can I find the password for the Web UI?

Please refer to this page to start a web server and get credentials. You may need to run this command cat ~/.osmedeus/config.yaml | grep password

How can I keep the scan or the web UI running in the background?

The simplest way to do it is running the process under tmux session.

How can I run osmedeus in my home network without killing my Internet?

It is always recommended to run Osmedeus in VPS, but you can use the --tactic or --threads-hold slowdown your scan like example command below

osmedeus scan --tactic gently -t
osmedeus scan --threads-hold=30 -f cidr -t

What should I do if Osmedeus found a vulnerability X?
  1. Read the vulnerability X description.
  2. Seriously, read the vulnerability X description.
  3. Remember that you were warned twice about reading the vulnerability X description.
  4. Search for that vulnerability X name.
  5. Manually verify the vulnerability X.
  6. Still no results? maybe this guide can help you.
Osmedeus found some vulnerable subdomains, but I am unable to access them?

It is often the case that the availability of a subdomain found during a scan may not be the same when you attempt to manually verify it. This depends on the target and can vary.

I consistently encounter the error message bash: /root/osmedeus-base/token/osm-default.rc: No such file or directory

please remove the line $HOME/osmedeus-base/token/osm-default.rc in your ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc and ~/.bash_profile file as the token config now has been move to $HOME/osmedeus-base/token/osm-var.yaml since v4.6.0

When I run with the --debug flag, I've noticed that certain commands are returning errors with exit statuses such as 128, 255, or -1. Is this to be expected?

Yes, it's normal for certain commands to exhibit expected exit statuses, as they may succeed under specific conditions. However, if you're confident that the raw bash command should succeed but is failing, please try copying the raw bash command and investigate why it's encountering issues.
