You can either clone the public repository:
$ git clone git://github.com/khast3x/h8mail
$ curl -OL https://github.com/khast3x/h8mail/tarball/master
Once you have a copy of the source, you can install it with:
$ cd h8mail/
$ python setup.py install
$ h8mail -h
$ cd h8mail/
$ python -m h8mail -h
$ docker run -ti kh4st3x00/h8mail -h
usage: h8mail [-h] -t TARGET_EMAILS [TARGET_EMAILS ...] [--loose]
[-c CONFIG_FILE [CONFIG_FILE ...]] [-o OUTPUT_FILE]
[-bc BC_PATH] [-sk] [-k CLI_APIKEYS [CLI_APIKEYS ...]]
[-lb LOCAL_BREACH_SRC [LOCAL_BREACH_SRC ...]]
[-gz LOCAL_GZIP_SRC [LOCAL_GZIP_SRC ...]] [-sf]
Email information and password lookup tool
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-t TARGET_EMAILS [TARGET_EMAILS ...], --targets TARGET_EMAILS [TARGET_EMAILS ...]
Either string inputs or files. Supports email pattern
matching from input or file, filepath globing and
--loose Allow loose search by disabling email pattern
recognition. Use spaces as pattern seperators
-c CONFIG_FILE [CONF IG_FILE ...], --config CONFIG_FILE [CONFIG_FILE ...]
Configuration file for API keys. Accepts keys from
Snusbase, (WeLeakInfo, Citadel.pw), hunterio
-o OUTPUT_FILE, --output OUTPUT_FILE
File to write CSV output
-bc BC_PATH, --breachcomp BC_PATH
Path to the breachcompilation torrent folder. Uses the
query.sh script included in the torrent.
-sk, --skip-defaults Skips HaveIBeenPwned and HunterIO check. Ideal for
-k CLI_APIKEYS [CLI_APIKEYS ...], --apikey CLI_APIKEYS [CLI_APIKEYS ...]
Pass config options. Supported format: "K=V,K=V"
-lb LOCAL_BREACH_SRC [LOCAL_BREACH_SRC ...], --local-bre ach LOCAL_BREACH_SRC [LOCAL_BREACH_SRC ...]
Local cleartext breaches to scan for targets. Uses
multiprocesses, one separate process per file, on
separate worker pool by arguments. Supports file or
folder as input, and filepath globing
-gz LOCAL_GZIP_SRC [LOCAL_GZIP_SRC ...], --gzip LOCAL_GZIP_SRC [LOCAL_GZIP_SRC ...]
Local tar.gz (gzip) compressed breaches to scans for
targets. Uses multiprocesses, one separate process per
file. Supports file or folder as input, and filepath
globing. Looks for 'gz' in filename
-sf, --single-file If breach contains big cleartext or tar.gz files, set
this flag to view the progress bar. Disables
concurrent file searching for stability
-ch [CHASE_LIMIT], --c hase [CHASE_LIMIT]
Add related emails from HunterIO to ongoing target
list. Define number of emails per target to chase.
Requires hunter.io private API key
Query for a single target
$ h8mail -t [email protected]
Query for list of targets, indicate config file for API keys, output to
$ h8mail -t targets.txt -c config.ini -o pwned_targets.csv
Query a list of targets against local copy of the Breach Compilation, pass API keys for Snusbase from the command line
$ h8mail -t targets.txt -bc ../Downloads/BreachCompilation/ -k "snusbase_url=$snusbase_url,snusbase_token=$snusbase_token"
Query without making API calls against local copy of the Breach Compilation
$ h8mail -t targets.txt -bc ../Downloads/BreachCompilation/ -sk
Search every .gz file for targets found in targets.txt locally
$ h8mail -t targets.txt -gz /tmp/Collection1/ -sk
Check a cleartext dump for target. Add the next 10 related emails to targets to check. Read keys from cli
$ h8mail -t [email protected] -lb /tmp/4k_Combo.txt -ch 10 -k "hunterio=ABCDE123"
Configuration file & keys
h8mail can read keys by using a
-c, or by passing keys from the command line directly with
The configuration file format is as follows:
; leak-lookup_pub = 1bf94ff907f68d511de9a610a6ff9263
Keys and their respective values can also be passed from the command line, with the
-koption. Format is like so:
$ h8mail -t [email protected] -k "K=V, K=V" "K=V"
Python version & Kali
- The above instructions assume you are running python3 as default. If unsure, type the following in your terminal.
It should be either
$ python --version
- If you are running python2 as default :
Make sure you have python3.6+ installed, then replace
pythoncommands with explicit
- If you have not set your venvs, you might get a permission error saying
Consider using the --user option or check the permissions.
Simply add --user like so:
$ pip install --user h8mail
h8mailuses ANSI color escape characters. Windows doesn't know how to show the colors, and will show gibberish instead.
Fortunately, you can use Cmder, which is an excellent Windows CMD prompt alternative
- If you're having trouble with python and pip, chances are you need to add python to your PATH.
pipwill also need to be in your
- If you're still having trouble with
pip, you can do the following:
# Check python version, should be 3.6+
C:> python --version
# To have python handle installation of pip
C:> python -m ensurepip
# To launch pip as a module
C:> python -m pip install h8mail
# To launch h8mail as a module
C:> python -m h8mail --help
- As described for Windows, you might encounter issues with python if your installation is incomplete, or
pip's installation directory is not in your PATH.
- If thats the case, you can try invoking
h8mailwith the same command lines as Windows.
- Make sure the
pythoncommand refers to Python 3 with
python --version, otherwise replace
python3in the instructions.
- Basically try this if installed and not executing, check Windows instructions for further examples:
$ python3 -m h8mail -h
