Orbitaldump - A Simple Multi-Threaded Distributed SSH Brute-Forcing Tool Written In Python

A simple multi-threaded distributed SSH brute-forcing tool written in Python.

How it Works

When the script is executed without the --proxies switch, it acts just like any other multi-threaded SSH brute-forcing scripts. When the --proxies switch is added, the script pulls a list (usually thousands) of SOCKS4 proxies from ProxyScrape and launch all brute-force attacks over the SOCKS4 proxies so brute-force attempts will be less likely to be rate-limited by the target host.


You can install OrbitalDump through pip.

pip install -U --user orbitaldumporbitaldump

Alternatively, you can clone this repository and run the source code directly.

git clone https://github.com/k4yt3x/orbitaldump.gitcd orbitaldumppython -m orbitaldump


A simple usage is shown below. This command below:

  • -t 10: launch 10 brute-forcing threads
  • -u usernames.txt: read usernames from usernames.txt (one username per line)
  • -p passwords.txt: read passwords from passwords.txt (one password per line)
  • -h example.com: set brute-forcing target to example.com
  • --proxies: launch attacks over proxies from ProxyScrape
python -m orbitaldump -t 10 -u usernames.txt -p passwords.txt -h example.com --proxies

Full Usages

You can obtain the full usages by executing OrbitalDump with the --help switch. The section below might be out-of-date.
