BruteSpray v1.6.0 – Brute-Forcing from Nmap output (Automatically attempts default creds on found services)

BruteSpray takes nmap GNMAP/XML output and automatically brute-forces services with default credentials using Medusa. BruteSpray can even find non-standard ports by using the -sV inside Nmap.

pip install -r requirements.txt

On Kali:

apt-get install brutespray

First do an nmap scan with -oG nmap.gnmap or -oX nmap.xml.


python brutespray.py -h


python brutespray.py --file nmap.gnmap


python brutesrpay.py --file nmap.xml


python brutespray.py --file nmap.xml -i


Using Custom Wordlists:

python brutespray.py --file nmap.gnmap -U /usr/share/wordlist/user.txt -P /usr/share/wordlist/pass.txt --threads 5 --hosts 5

Brute-Forcing Specific Services:

python brutespray.py --file nmap.gnmap --service ftp,ssh,telnet --threads 5 --hosts 5

Specific Credentials:

python brutespray.py --file nmap.gnmap -u admin -p password --threads 5 --hosts 5

Continue After Success:

python brutespray.py --file nmap.gnmap --threads 5 --hosts 5 -c
