Parsebin – A Powershell Pastebin Parser16 Feb 2015
By now, most folks have realized that pastebin holds some interesting data. Some of the information you run across can be interesting – if not hilarious. That is, as long is it’s not *your* data.
In 2011, Xavier Garcia put together a python pastebin scraper.
For no real reason I decided to
hack together rewrite this in powershell. If this helps you, cool.
Description of required files:
- ./seen.txt : a list of pasties scraped already. This is created by the script
- ./regex.txt : the regex expressions used to look for juicy information. This is created by you
- ./found/ : this is actually a folder you’ll need to create. This is to hold the auto-downloaded pastes found. I’ve commented this out. Use at your own risk!
Script (parsebin.ps1) : I’ve linked to it here. Rename it to .ps1 of course.
