tachyon v3.2.1 releases: Fast Multi-Threaded Web Discovery Tool

Tachyon is a Fast Multi-Threaded Web Discovery Tool.

The main goal of it is to help webadmins find leftover files in their site installation, permission problems and web server configuration errors. It is not a vulnerability scanner or a web crawler.

It provides:

  • Plugin support
  • SSL support
  • Robots.txt support
  • Common directory lookup
  • Fast Multi-Threaded execution
  • Automatic variable rate limiter
  • Recursive scanning



  • Added file checks for Spring Boot Actuator


  • Upgraded to hammertime-http 0.6.0
  • Improved compatibility with Python 3.5 to 3.7



A mainstream OS (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X)
Python 3.x (Could still work with 2.7, with minor issues)
urllib3 1.1+
