Free tool to do automated threat hunting in deep web

As many users will know, browsing the deep web requires tools specific to this task, although needless to say that many work better than others. This time, experts in ethical hacking from the International Institute of Cyber Security (IICS) will show you Darkdump, an advanced search engine for deep web and dark web.

Darkdump is a simple script written in Python3.9 in which it allows users to enter a search query on the command line. As a result, the tool retrieves all deep web sites related to that query, in a way that is really similar to conventional search engines.


To get started, ethical hacking experts mention that you need to download the tool from GitHub using the git command; then change the directory and run the python command to install the dependencies.

git clone darkdumppython3 –m pip install –r requirements.txt

You can now work with this tool using python3

python3 —help


Darkdump is easy to use as only one command is required to run. As you can see below, the results are exactly what were entered in the search. Let’s look at the following example:

python3 —help


A bank identification number (BIN) refers to the initial set of four to six digits that appear on a payment card. When we search, we’ll find many websites, some of which provide tools to create unlimited shopping carts and others provide free debit card numbers.

python3 —query bin

Also, by increasing the number of pages, you can also see more results for the same query.

python3 —query bins —page 2
