Trufflehog Tool hint from Wunorse Openslae

Speaking of good ways to find credentials, have you heard of Trufflehog?
It's a cool way to dig through repositories for passwords, RSA keys, and more.
I mean, no one EVER uploads sensitive credentials to public repositories, right? But if they did, this would be a great tool for finding them.
But hey, listen to me ramble. If you're interested in Trufflehog, you should check out Brian Hostetler's talk!
Have you tried the entropy=True option when running Trufflehog? It is amazing how much deeper it will dig!

Let's install Trufflehog, clone the North Pole Git repository and run trufflehog on it.

pip install truffleHog
git clone
trufflehog ./santas_castle_automation

+Our Lead InfoSec Engineer Bushy Evergreen has been noticing an increase of brute force attacks in our logs. Furthermore, Albaster discovered and published a vulnerability with our password length at the last Hacker Conference.
+Bushy directed our elves to change the password used to lock down our sensitive files to something stronger. Good thing he caught it before those dastardly villians did!
+Hopefully this is the last time we have to change our password again until next Christmas.
