Javascript in OSINT


Like everyone working in this industry, there are a lot of great websites and tools available. For the sites that I search a lot, Javascript (JS) can be a very useful way to have most of the sites all on one page.

This isn’t a tutorial on JS, it is simply a short post to show how it can be used to have your most commonly used sites all in one place.

Below is an example of a very simply way to use JS.

ABN Lookup

Search Linkedin via Google

Search facebook via Google

Search Tinder

Since the code is in JS, using CTR U, you will be able to see how the code works. For those who don’t want to press CRT U, here is the code.

<strong>Search Tinder</strong>

<script type=”text/javascript”>
function w4(t1) {
window.open(‘https://www.gotinder.com/@’ + t1, ‘t1window’);

<form onsubmit=”w4(this.t1.value); return false;”>
<input type=”text” name=”t1″ size=”20″ placeholder=”username” />
<input type=”submit” value=”Submit” />

As you can see, it is very simple and easy to alter. A great place to test and play with your code is Codepen.io. It is free (there is a paid option) and very easy to use. The code for the tools on this page can be found here https://codepen.io/vunoo/pen/ExxPopx?editors=1100

Another site I like is https://liveweave.com. What is appealing to this site is it doesn’t require a login. Which I find very handy when out and about and want to play with some code.

If there are websites you use on a regular basis, JS may help. Especially when checking a lot of social media websites for possible user names. Websites like https://instantusername.com/#/ and https://checkusernames.com do a good job of this. But there is no reason you can use checkusernames.com/?username=ENTERUSERNAME from your own page.

There are so many ways to automate or keep your work neat and tidy. JS, I have found can help with this.
