A special thanks to my good friend Ethan Robish (@EthanRobish) who has been a technical advisor for this project since its inception. Without Ethan, Recon-ng simply would not be the tool that it is today. Thanks Ethan. For other credits, please see the various accepted pull requests and module meta data. Thank you to all who have contributed. Recon-ng is truly a community project.
