Sn1per SE v10.3 Update

Sn1per Scan Engine v10.3 Released!

Sn1per SE (Scan Engine) v10.3 is now available with a ton of new features and improvements. This update is part of the Sn1per SE development branch which is available to Sn1per Professional v10.0 and Sn1per Enterprise customers. If you are a previous customer (ie. Sn1per Professional v9.0 or less) or if you use the Community Edition available on Github, you will need to purchase a Sn1per Professional v10.0 license to download and receive updates.

New Vulnerability Templates

46 custom/private OWASP fuzzer templates were added in Sn1per v10.3 to dynamically fuzz all URL’s or SQLi, XSS, RCE, etc. This has added a ton of new scanning capabilities for improved vulnerability detection. 2 new custom static templates were also added detect sensitive and interesting data across all URL’s discovered as well, giving customers an advantage at finding more interesting vulnerabilities and disclosures.

Going forward, the Nuclei scanner will run in 4 stages listed below:
  1. Scan for web server vulnerabilities
  2. Scan all dynamic URL’s for OWASP vulnerabilities (ie. SQLi, XSS, Traversal, etc.)
  3. Statically scan all URL’s discovered for interesting and sensitive data
  4. Statically scan all JavaScript URL’s for DOM XSS and sensitive data

This will vastly improve Sn1per’s ability to detect dynamic vulnerabilities such as Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), SQL injection, etc. across all URLs discovered.

New Features

SMTP integration and email notifications were added to Sn1per v10.3. Similar to Sn1per’s current Slack integration, SMTP notifications will allow customers to set their SMTP server and notification preferences to receive a full text-based notification when certain events are triggered. The event types are list below for reference:

  1. New domains
  2. New sub-domain takeovers
  3. New vulnerabilities

To setup SMTP notifications, a valid SMTP server will already need to be established and working and the following will need to be set in either your Sn1per configuration file or /root/.sniper_api_keys.conf:

##-------------------------------------------------------## SMTP SETTINGS
SMTP_ALERTS_EMAIL_FROM="[email protected]"
SMTP_ALERTS_EMAIL_TO="[email protected]"



Sn1per SMTP Alerts

Hidden web content discovery was also greatly enhanced in Sn1per v10.3 with the use of FFuF and a new and improved (private/custom) wordlist, yielding faster, more accurate results.

A new tool named “RequestX” (private) was added to validate all URL’s discovered, and “uro” was added to reduce the number of URL’s and only show unique endpoints. Wget was also added to replace BlackWidow for active web spidering.


A number of new fixes were also added to Sn1per v10.3 to ensure comparability with the latest tools and releases. These include updates to OpenVAS/GVM, Burpsuite Professional and Nuclei to name a few.
