Re: Scan virtual hosts

To bruteforce all domains in the HOST field would mean having a list of
all domains.  Scraping together that list to completeness could be an
interesting task.

I recommend first:

Is the website of the hosting provider listing it's hosted websites on
their website?  Did googling for that IP lead to anything?  Do the
Pointer and A records on DNS for that IP or a range of the IPs under the
hosting provider's control provide you with fodder to bf the Host header
(including using the IPs,, and in the Host header)?

If the answer to any of these is no, then you might be up the creek. I
have looked into this before and I couldn't figure out a *good* way
except to actually get an account on that web server and view the /home
(or similar) directory.

Dear list,

is it possible to enumerate all virtual hosts on a given IP address ? I
prefer Linux soft.

It is possible, you could brute force the Host: header, however I dont
personally know any tool that currently does this I am afraid.  It would
be pretty trivial
to implement though.
