Does DIRB send any requests? I thought it just crawl the site to get as many directories as possible right? Even if it does send requests, need to customize the tool to send multiple requests; then that'll be inefficient and it's just better to use Hammer or something? :unsure: :unsure:

in order to check whether a directory exists or not, the tool has to send a HTTP request.

So, it probably can, but it may not be as effective.

Try it on localhost and see how much bandwidth got transferred

There's a cli tool called "ab" which is included with Apache HTTPD installation, which, I think can be abused for the same purpose too. Furthermore, it supports multithreading which makes it even better.

Thank you for the clarification, I like to rectify my points then. Will be looking on it 👍
