  • NORMAL: Performs basic scan of targets and open ports using both active and passive checks for optimal performance.
  • STEALTH: Quickly enumerate single targets using mostly non-intrusive scans to avoid WAF/IPS blocking.
  • FLYOVER: Fast multi-threaded high level scans of multiple targets (useful for collecting high level data on many hosts quickly).
  • AIRSTRIKE: Quickly enumerates open ports/services on multiple hosts and performs basic fingerprinting. To use, specify the full location of the file which contains all hosts, IPs that need to be scanned and run ./sn1per /full/path/to/targets.txt airstrike to begin scanning.
  • NUKE: Launch full audit of multiple hosts specified in text file of choice. Usage example: ./sniper /pentest/loot/targets.txt nuke.
  • DISCOVER: Parses all hosts on a subnet/CIDR (ie. and initiates a sniper scan against each host. Useful for internal network scans.
  • PORT: Scans a specific port for vulnerabilities. Reporting is not currently available in this mode.
  • FULLPORTONLY: Performs a full detailed port scan and saves results to XML.
  • MASSPORTSCAN: Runs a "fullportonly" scan on mutiple targets specified via the "-f" switch.
  • WEB: Adds full automatic web application scans to the results (port 80/tcp & 443/tcp only). Ideal for web applications but may increase scan time significantly.
  • MASSWEB: Runs "web" mode scans on multiple targets specified via the "-f" switch.
  • WEBPORTHTTP: Launches a full HTTP web application scan against a specific host and port.
  • WEBPORTHTTPS: Launches a full HTTPS web application scan against a specific host and port.
  • WEBSCAN: Launches a full HTTP & HTTPS web application scan against via Burpsuite and Arachni.
  • MASSWEBSCAN: Runs "webscan" mode scans of multiple targets specified via the "-f" switch.
  • VULNSCAN: Launches a OpenVAS vulnerability scan.
  • MASSVULNSCAN: Launches a "vulnscan" mode scans on multiple targets specified via the "-f" switch.
