Zeus-Scanner – Advanced Dork Searching Utility

Zeus is a advanced dork searching tool that is capable of bypassing search engine API calls, search engine captchas, and IP address blocking from sending many requests to the search engine itself. Zeus can use three different search engines to do the search (default is Google). Zeus has a powerful built in engine, automates a hidden web browser to pull the search URL, and can run sqlmap and nmap scans on the URL’s.




There are a few requirements for this:

  • Firefox web browser is required as of now, I will be adding the functionality of most web browsers.
  • If you want to run sqlmap through the URL’s you will need sqlmap somewhere on your system.
  • If you want to run a port scan using nmap on the URL’s IP addresses. You will need nmap on your system.
    • Highly advised tip: Add sqlmap and nmap to your ENV PATH
  • Gecko web driver is required and will be installed the first time you run. It will be added to your /usr/bin so that it can be run in your ENV PATH.
  • You must be sudo for the first time running this so that you can add the driver to your PATH
  • selenium-webdriver package is required to automate the web browser and bypass API calls.
  • requests package is required to connect to the URL, and the sqlmap API
  • python-nmap package is required to run nmap on the URL’s IP addresses
  • whichcraft package is required to check if nmap and sqlmap are on your system if you want to use them
  • pyvirtualdisplay package is required to hide the browser display while finding the search URL
  • xvfb is required by pyvirtualdisplay, it will be installed if not installed on your first run



To install Zeus you simply need to do the following:

  • (optional but highly advised) add sqlmap and nmap to your environment PATH by moving them to /usr/bin or by adding them to the PATH via terminal
  • Clone the repository git clone
  • cd into zeus-scanner
  • Run pip install -r requirements.txt
  • For your first run, run sudo python

This will install all the package requirements along with the gecko web driver
