I am quite regular visitor of milw0rm and generally try to keep up with the vul’s. For doing this I wrote a small scripts rather set of scripts to keep myself update.  Here’s what we are going to do:

  1. Get the latest tar from the site.

  2. Extract it.

  3. Make the index

  4. Have a shortcut to search the index.

Download the attached files for the first 2 points. <a href="">makeindex-milw0rm and <a href="">udpate-milw0rm

Now open the update-milw0rm file with the directory paths, that is located in the starting of the file.

Once that is done, do the following on the terminal,

crontab -e

Add a entry like this:

@daily /home/amit/

So you are all set to automatically download and update the data everyday. Lets now create a alias to search the exploitlist from the terminal.

Put the following in your profile :

alias search_sploit=&#8221;cat $(cat ~/bin/|grep dir=|awk -F&#8217;=&#8217; '{print $2}&#8217;|awk -F&#8217;&#8221;&#8217; '{print $2}&#8217;)/milw0rm/sploitlist.txt|grep -i&#8221;

Now, when you want to search the database for the exploit you can simply type:
