RTS (Realtime scrapper) is a tool developed to scrap all pasties,github,reddit..etc in real time to identify the occurrence of search terms configured. Upon the match, an email will be triggered. Thus allowing the company to react in case of leakage of code, any hacks tweeted..etc.. and harden themselves against an attack before it goes viral.
The same tool in malicious user hands can be used offensively to get the update on any latest hacks, code leakage etc..
List of sites which will be monitored are:
- Non-Pastie Sites
- Pastie Sites
