Silver 0.1 RC releases: Mass scan IPs for vulnerable services


Mass Vulnerability Scanner

masscan is fast, nmap can fingerprint software and vulners is a huge vulnerability database. Silver is a front-end that allows complete utilization of these programs by parsing data, spawning parallel processes, caching vulnerability data for faster scanning over time and much more.


  • Resumable scanning
  • Slack notifcations
  • multi-core utilization
  • Vulnerability data caching
  • Smart Shodan integration*

*Shodan integration is optional but when linked, Silver can automatically use Shodan to retrieve service and vulnerability data if a host has a lot of ports open to save resources. Shodan credits used per scan by Silver can be throttled. The minimum number of ports to trigger Shodan can be configured as well.

Changelog v0.1 RC

  • bug fixes
  • support for hostnames
  • save nmap’s output as well
  • disable host discovery in nmap
  • –rate option for controlling masscan’s pps rate



git clone
cd Silver
pip3 install -r requirements.txt


Slack WebHook, Shodan API key and limits can be configured by editing respective variables in /core/

Setting up Slack notifications

  • Create a workspace on slack, here
  • Create an app, here
  • Enable WebHooks from the app and copy the URL from there to Silver’s /core/ file.


Note: Silver scans all TCP ports by default i.e. ports 0-65535.
