    Meet MailSniper, a new pen tester tool that may be of interest to you if you need to find sensitive data such as passwords, credit card numbers and healthcare data, or need to access databases, or even to discover insider and network architecture information.

    MailSniper is a penetration testing tool, written in PowerShell, to allow for mass searching through email across every mailbox of an organization’s Microsoft Exchange environment.

    Beau Bullock, from the penetration testing firm Black Hills Information Security, cited a 2016 Mandiant M-Trends Report (pdf) which claimed organizations are compromised an average of 146 days before detecting a breach.
