Dumb – A Faster And Flexible Domain Bruteforcer


A tool to brute force domains!

How DUMB works:

Dumb works with a masked domain for substitution. The domain can have as many masks as you want as long as you pass the according wordlists. For example:

Brute forcing subdomains:

Using the mask DUMB.domain.com and the following wordlists:

Dumb will generate the following domains for bruteforce:

For subdomains, you can only pass domain.com and dumb will understand as DUMB.domain.com.

Bruteforcing domain endings:

Using the same principle, you can pass as mask dumain.DUMB with the following wordlist:

Dumb will generate the following domains for bruteforce:

Bruteforcing everything:

To bruteforce everything you can pass the mask as “DUMB.DUMB.DUMB” passing three wordlists:

Dumb will generate:


Dumb receives the domain mask as first parameter and the wordlists following. The number of wordlists must match the number of masks in the domain. For example:

  • One mask:
    $ dumb “DUMB.dumain.com” wordlists/foo.txt
  • Two masks:
    $ dumb “DUMB.dumain.DUMB” wordlists/foo.txt wordlists/bar.txt
  • Several masks:
    $ dumb “DUMB-DUMB-DUMB_DUMB.DUMB.DUMB” wordlists/foo_1.txt … wordlists/foo_6.txt


If you don’t want to build from source, you can use the docker version:

  • docker run -it giovanifss/dumb “DUMB.dumain.com” subdomains.txt

All the wordlists in wordlists/ are inside the docker container in filesystem root /, this means that you can call dumb passing the wordlists name:

  • docker run -it giovanifss/dumb “DUMB.dumain.com” (subdomains.txt|subdominios.txt|domain-endings.txt)

To work with local wordlists that aren’t present inside the container, you can use docker volumes:
docker run -v local/wordlist.txt:/opt/wordlist.txt -it giovanifss/dumb “DUMB.dumain.com” /opt/wordlist.txt

Building from source:

If you want to build from source you will need stack:

  • Enter in the project directory and run $ stack build.
  • To execute: $ stack exec dumb “DUMB.dumain.com” wordlists/subdomains.txt

Note that some older versions of stack have some problems to build the project (Debian stack package, for example). Make sure you get the latest stack version.

Future features:

Future planned features are:

  • Argument parser support, for better configuration of the tool execution;
  • Post analysis of found domains, generating statistics and metrics;


The tool performance will highly depend on your network connection. Usually, it should take less then 10 seconds to finish a subdomain burteforce with the wordlists/subdomains.txt wordlist.

If you have a good connection and think that the tool is slow, try changing the 1000 in the splitDomains function call, e.g. mapM_ (MP.mapM_ (resolve rs)) (splitDomains 1000 allDomains), to a higher value.

Alternatively, you can change mapM_ (MP.mapM_ (resolve rs)) (splitDomains 1000 allDomains) to MP.mapM_ (resolve rs) allDomains to execute all the requests in parallel.
