Hi everyone,

SpiderFoot is a free, open-source footprinting tool, enabling you to perform various scans against a given domain name in order to obtain information such as sub-domains, e-mail addresses, owned netblocks, web server versions and so on. The main objective of SpiderFoot is to automate the footprinting process to the greatest extent possible, freeing up a penetration tester's time to focus their efforts on the security testing itself.

Grab it from: http://www.spiderfoot.net/

New in this release, which is actually a complete re-write of the version from 2005(!): - Now runs on Windows as well as Linux, Solaris, *BSD (basically anything with Python should be fine)
    - Scans are even more configurable than before
- All scan data stored locally in an SQLite database for querying, reporting and analysis - Many more scans/tests included (GeoIP, URL linkage, web technology, port scans...) - You can now easily extend functionality by writing your own modules in Python
    - Completely new user interface, which is now entirely web-based
    - Configuration state is stored between runs
    - Scanning can be remotely controlled

I hope you find it useful, and if you have any suggestions/complaints, feel free to contact me.
