Privacy update

Been awhile since I've posted. Not as paranoid as I used to be but still cautious and thus I have 2 new tools to recommend.
I use Brave browser more nowadays because it is built with privacy in mind. However, I installed uBlock Origin plugins for Chrome and Firefox when not on Brave.

Script to dump contents of "Robots.txt"

Recently picked up "Python" and decided to try my hand at a "n00b" script to dump the contents of "Robots.txt" file residing on a webserver.

# Ask for Protocol and store it in protocol
protocol = input('Enter HTTP or HTTPS: ')

# Ask for URL or IP and store it in domain
domain = input('Enter URL or IP: ')

robots = "/robots.txt"

from urllib.request import Request, urlopen
print('Checking "Robots.txt" for:')
from urllib.error import URLError, HTTPError
req = Request(protocol+"://"+domain+robots)
    response = urlopen(req)
except HTTPError as e:
    print('The server couldn\'t fulfill the request.')
    print('Error code: ', e.code)
except URLError as e:
    print('We failed to reach the server.')
    print('Reason: ', e.reason)
    print('Contents of "Robots.txt" is as follows.')
with urlopen((protocol+"://"+domain+robots)) as stream:

sslyze batch

I have always been about efficiency and decided to script my "sslyze" scans. Simple batch file below.

@echo off

set today=!date:/=-!
set now=!time::=-!

@echo SSLYZE scanning in progress... please be patient...
@echo off
cd \sslyze1-0-0
sslyze.exe --regular --targets_in=targets.txt > sslyze-!today!_!now!.txt

start "" "sslyze-!today!_!now!.txt"

#Please edit "targets.txt" in SSLYZE folder.
#Results will be stored in SSLYZE folder.

Remember to create a file "targets.txt" in your sslyze folder and populate it with the hostnames/IPs you want to test.
