Hola, amigos! We greet you this way for some reason — since our users come from different countries, we stay closer to their needs. So, this article will be dedicated to help our users from Spain. For you, folks, we’ve got a useful tool for your investigation needs. Ever heard of LibreBOR search engine? Well, even if not, we have implemented it in Lampyre for you.
Let us show how to quickly access it in Lampyre. First, open your existing investigation in Lampyre, or create a new one. …
Hi everyone! Today we will talk about one of many interesting features Lampyre has. First, let’s assume that you have the exact or approximate location, and you know where it is on the map. And you would like to collect some information that relates to it. Guess what? We have some helpful tools for that. It’s time for you to try it yourself, and we will guide you through this.
Open your existing investigation in Lampyre, or create a new one. Click File, then New GIS Map:
Every now and then, we’re being asked about using Lampyre anonymously. So we’re posting this short manual on how to preserve your privacy while conducting your investigation in Lampyre. The same may be done when you’re using our web search (Data lookup) or Lighthouse API.
If you are a beginner in OSINT area, we also highly recommend looking into using sock puppets for your research.
General rules of using Lampyre anonymously:
1. Do not provide personal data at your registration.
2. Any interaction with the lampyre.io services should be done through anonymizing services, VPN for example.
3. Use lampyre.io services only on the…
Bank secrecy, like doctor-patient confidentiality, is the basis of our modern world professional ethics. Of course, acting upon law, government establishments regularly get access to information on private and corporate accounts and their transactions. But whenever such information is leaked, it automatically becomes a sensation. This is exactly what happened to the recent USA Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCen) data leak.
What’s inside the leak and why haven’t it been fully reported (yet)
Information, which was leaked to mass media, contains reports on suspicious transactions in the total sum of more than 2 trillion dollars. …
Instagram! One of the most popular social networks in the world. Which means millions of users and a lot of activity. Lampyre offers broad possibilities for working with Instagram in the area of OSINT. The variety of available requests allows not only searching for accounts but also analyzing their contents in different ways.

So let’s open Lampyre and proceed to the List of Requests. There are many different requests there so we can apply filter to see only the ones we…
Last night, Matthias Wilson posted this article in his blog. He implied there, that although Lampyre is a very powerful OSINT platform, it should not be trusted. The author did a research on the background of the software and its developing company (Data Tower). Some things there are true and some are not. As to that, we’re posting to tell what the things really are.
Data Tower and Norsi-Trans are indeed connected. Some enthusiasts from Norsi-Trans are sharing with Data Tower their great experience in developing analytical systems. It helps us improve Lampyre. …
They’re everywhere. Every day thousands of fake accounts are being created for selling, fraud, disinformation and all sorts of scams. And each one of them may look and act differently. How to figure them out?
This is an issue not only for OSINT researchers. It affects everyday lives of all people.
Rash reposts may help in spreading fake information. An impulsive reply in a personal correspondence of a corporate account may assist social engineers in getting confidential data. A meeting with a supposed “potential” client from the Internet may destroy a business.
That’s why it is so important to check…
Están por todas partes. Cada día se crean miles de cuentas falsas que tienen como fin hacer ventas posteriores, estafar, difundir información falsa o realizar otras acciones deshonestas. Y cada una de ellas puede presentar un aspecto y un comportamiento diferente. ¿Cómo detectarlas?
Esta cuestión no atañe solo a los investigadores de OSINT. La solución a este problema influye en la vida real de todas las personas.
Hacer un “repost” a la ligera puede ayudar a difundir información falsa. Una respuesta poco meditada a un mensaje privado de la cuenta corporativa puede ayudar a un ingeniero social a ganarse acceso…
Echando un simple vistazo al perfil de la persona investigada usando la cuenta falsa que hemos creado para tal fin, podemos determinar la imagen que este individuo se está creando en la red y cuáles son sus posibles intereses. Esto es especialmente cierto si se estudian los perfiles de la misma persona en varias redes sociales.
Pero una investigación como esta puede pasar por alto cierta información que no es evidente, pero si es muy importante. …
Having scrolled down the profile of your person of interest, logged into your new well-prepared sock puppet, usually helps you quickly define what image this person is trying to convey and what interests he or she has. Especially if you are researching multiple accounts of the same person in different social networks. (We previously posted about such research here.)
However, one still might miss some not rather striking but sometimes very important information. Your object of interest probably pays no attention to it, but it really reveals a great deal more than the actual posts.
Today we are sharing with…
Data analysis & OSINT tool for everyone. Obtain, visualize and analyze data in one place to see what others can’t.
