  • Hyper efficient – Uses Go-routines which are even lighter than threads.

  • Masscan ( sudo apt install masscan )
  • Tested on Ubuntu & Kali linux

How to install and run –

git clone
cd mongoBuster
go build mongobuster.go utils.go
sudo ./mongobuster

Note: Run it with sudo as Masscan requires sudo access.

Flags –

Flag Description
–max-rate= (int) Defines maximum rate at which packets are generated and sent. Default is 100.
–out-file= (string) Name of file to which vulnerable IPs will be exported.
-v Display error msgs from non-vulnerable servers

Using ridiculous values for max-rate flag like 10000+ will most likely bring down your own network infrastructure.
Recommended value is to start with --max-rate 500 for consumer Gigabit routers.
