I’m following the lecture about Maltego. Do indeed to ask permission to run the scans he is doing on the isecurity domain. And also it appears that when I ran the scan on my domain I got a warning to say the Bing scans are only possible on the paid version. Is that correct? Does this mean I can’t do any of the exercises that Zaid does with Maltego. I’d appreciate your insight into this.
Maltego is a passive reconnaissance tool so there’s no need for permission.
You’ll get this Bing warning only when you want to use a transformer that relies on search engine, the reason for this is Bing started charging people for using their search API, so the only solution is to purchase a license, but you can still use all other transformers that do not rely on search engine.
The search engine transformers just use Bing anyway to search for result, so you can just do that manually yourself, the only disadvantage is that you’ll get the result in the web browser instead of having them in a nice graph.
