Bbrecon – Python Library And CLI For The Bug Bounty Recon API

 

Bug Bounty Recon (bbrecon) is a free Recon-as-a-Service for bug bounty hunters and security researchers. The API aims to provide a continuously up-to-date map of the Internet “safe harbor” attack surface, excluding out-of-scope targets.
It comes with an ergonomic CLI and Python library.
This repository holds the CLI and Python library. Please see the website for more details.

Important Notice
While effort is taken to ensure the results returned by bbrecon are reliable and trustworthy, this service and its operators are in no way responsible for what you do with the data provided.
Double check your scopes and ensure you stay within safe harbors.

Features

  • Public Programs – public bug bounty programs indexed and searchable with filters (live)
  • Domains – domains in scope across programs (live)
  • Private Programs – support for private programs (September 2020)
  • Notifications – webhook alerts when programs are created, updated or domains discovered (September 2020)
  • Endpoints – all HTTP and non-HTTP endpoints in scope across all programs (October 2020)

Status
bbrecon is in a gradual Beta release phase; major features are released every few weeks to get feedback and fix kinks. You can sign up and start using it, but be aware that breaking changes may be deployed without notice. While the service and infrastructure is designed to scale, it is not currently configured to serve a large global audience. This will change, but for now YMMV.

Help
Please report bugs with GitHub issues.
Use the Gitter chat for support or enquiring about service availability during beta.

Getting Started

API key
Fetch an API key from the Console: https://console.bugbountyrecon.com
Only Google SSO is supported at this time.

Installation

$ pip3 install bbrecon

bbrecon requires Python >= 3.8 – if pip tells you it can’t find bbrecon it’s probably because pip is using another Python version. Check this with pip3 --version.

If you intend to use the CLI, you should permanently configure your key:

$ bbrecon configure key
Enter your API key: YOUR_API_KEY

You can alternatively set the BBRECON_KEY environment variable if you prefer.

CLI
The following will output all programs released in the last month that have “web” type targets (APIs/web apps):

$ bbrecon get programs --type web --since last-month
SLUG         PLATFORM     CREATED     REWARDS      MIN.BOUNTY    AVG.BOUNTY    MAX.BOUNTY      SCOPES  TYPES
cybrary      bugcrowd     2020-07-22  fame         $0            $0            $0                   6  android,ios,web
expressvpn   bugcrowd     2020-07-14  cash,fame    $150          $1047         $2500               17  android,ios,other,web

...

To get scopes for specific programs, use get scopes:

$ bbrecon get scopes rockset codefi-bbp
SLUG        PLATFORM    TYPE    VALUE
rockset     hackerone   web     console.rockset.com
rockset     hackerone   web     docs.rockset.com
rockset     hackerone   web     api.rs2.usw2.rockset.com
codefi-bbp  hackerone   web     activate.codefi.network

To get domains for specific programs, use get domains:

$ bbrecon get domains dropcontact rebellion-defense
SLUG               DOMAIN                    CREATED
dropcontact        www.dropcontact.io        2020-08-23
rebellion-defense  mooch.rip                 2020-08-23
rebellion-defense  www.rebelliondefense.com  2020-08-23
rebellion-defense  rebelliondefense.com      2020-08-23
...

Most commands can output JSON to make it easy to work with your scripts. Try --output json:

$ bbrecon get programs --output json
[
    {
        "url": "https://bugcrowd.com/optimizely",
        "name": "Optimizely",
        "platform": "bugcrowd",
        "rewards": [
            "cash",
            "fame"
        ],
...

You can get information about specific programs by passing one or many slugs to the get programs command:

$ bbrecon get programs twago optimizely
SLUG        PLATFORM    CREATED     REWARDS    MIN.BOUNTY    AVG.BOUNTY    MAX.BOUNTY      SCOPES  TYPES
twago       intigriti   2020-04-09             $0            $0            $0                   5  web
optimizely  bugcrowd    2018-03-22  cash,fame  $0            $750          $5000                6  web

Use --help to get a list of filters for each command:

$ bbrecon get programs --help
...
                                  Output format.  [default: wide]
  -n, --name TEXT                 Filter by name.
  -t, --type TEXT                 Filter by scope type. Can be used multiple
                                  times.
-r, --reward TEXT Filter by reward type. Can be used multiple
times.
-p, --platform TEXT Filter by platform. Can be used multiple
times.
--exclude-platform TEXT Exclude specific platform. Ignored if
--platform was passed. Can be used multiple
times.
-s, --since TEXT Filter by bounties created after a certain
date. A specific date in the format
'%Y-%m-%d' can be supplied. Alte rnatively,
the following keywords are supported:
'yesterday', 'last-week', 'last-month',
'last-year' as well as 'last-X-days' (where
'X' is an integer).
...

Note that some filters are lists, and can be used multiple times! If you wanted to get all programs that have mobile apps in scope you could run:

$ bbrecon get programs --type android --type ios
SLUG           PLATFORM     CREATED     REWARDS      MIN.BOUNTY    AVG.BOUNTY    MAX.BOUNTY  SCOPES  TYPES

Python
You are invited to check out this repo's codebase for more details, but to get started:

 

from bbrecon import BugBountyRecon
bb = BugBountyRecon(token=API_TOKEN)
programs = bb.programs(
types=["web", "ios"],
platforms=["hackerone"],
rewards=["cash"],
)
for program in programs:
print(f"{program.name} rewards up to ${program.maximum_bounty}!")
print(f"More information is available at: {program.url}")
for scope in program.in_scope:
if scope.type == "desktop":
print("Found a desktop app in scope for this program. Cool!")
