Tool and Usage
ThreatPinch is a Chrome extension to perform information lookups on data artifacts like domain names, hashes, IP addresses, and more.
Why this tool?
ThreatPinch helps to speed up collecting information from common resources like CVE databases or public WHOIS data. As it works from the browser, it is a helpful addition for people who have to perform forensics, security monitoring, or system administration. For example, getting the owner of a domain and IP address becomes almost instant knowledge.
How it works
This security tool is a wrapper around API's. Whenever a particular piece of information is highlighted, the format the selected text is compared to a set of known formats. Depending on the type of data, the right queries are then performed. Such a query could be a CVE lookup for packages, or a WHOIS lookup for domains.
