HackTheBox: FFUF not showing file sizes in Kali console

Was working my way through the exercises on hackthebox.com and every FFUF scan was saying the file size as 0.






Turns out it was Bitdefender’ “Online Threat Protection” ->”Network threat protection”.

This blocks the filesize of FFUF results so the will come out as 0 if you are connected using VirtualBox.

create your own search engine using searxng and linux

The excellent network chuck on youtube made a video the other day about making your own search engine with searxng so i thought id put the steps involved on doing in locally in Linux.

Update our linux installation

sudo apt install docker.io

install docker compose tool:

sudo apt install docker-compose

navigate to dir where you want to keep searxng, in this example well put it in “/usr/local/”

cd /usr/local

download searxng;

git clone https://github.com/searxng/searxng-docker.git
cd searxng-docker

create secret key;

sudo sed -i "s|ultrasecretkey|$(openssl rand -hex 32)|g" searxng/settings.yml

start up docker containers

sudo docker-compose up
