Domain DNS scanner
Fierce is a semi-lightweight scanner that helps locate non-contiguous IP space and hostnames against specified domains. It's really meant as a pre-cursor to nmap, unicornscan, nessus, nikto, etc, since all of those require that you already know what IP space you are looking for. This does not perform exploitation and does not scan the whole internet indiscriminately. It is meant specifically to locate likely targets both inside and outside a corporate network.
Because it uses DNS primarily you will often find mis-configured networks that leak internal address space. That's especially useful in targeted malware. Originally written by RSnake along with others at http://ha.ckers.org/. This is simply a conversion to Python 3 to simplify and modernize the codebase.
