Maltego 4.0.15 is here!

We're happy to announce that Maltego 4.0.15 (for XL and Classic) has just been released. With it comes a whole host of bug fixes, improvements and new features.

What's new:
  • New tabular import wizard
    • Much (much!) quicker to import large amounts of data
    • Connectivity matrix helps you connect the dots
    • Auto-detection of columns and column entity types saves you time
    • Import multiple files at once - underrated feature of the month!
  • List view - back by popular demand!
  • Recent entities section in entities pallet so you don't need to search for them
  • Leaf selection (we should have had this in V1)
  • 100+ small bug fixes so things just works better.

Tabular Importer

Connectivity Matrix

The new connectivity matrix allows you to easily define the relationships between the imported entities.



Column Entity Types

You can now specify the entity type in the data headers.
E.g. A column with the heading "maltego.Person" will automatically be recognized as a Person entity, without having to do the mapping manually.


Import Multiple Files at Once

If you have your data split over multiple files, you can configure your column mapping once, and import all the files at once. Please note that the file layouts must all be identical.


List View

The List View can be used as an alternative to the entity view as a way to view a graph in a tabular format. The entity selection behavior and functionality is identical between the entity view and the list view. Changing from "Entity Selection" to "Link Selection" will display all the graph links of entities.

Leaf Selection


The new "Select Leaves" button allows you to quickly select entities that have no outgoing links and a single incoming link (so strictly speaking it's not a "real" leaf node... but we like it like that!).

To update your Maltego client click on the Application Button (left top), Tools -> Check for Updates:
This will update your Maltego to 4.0.15. We hope you're having fun with our latest update!

Maltego 4 CE / Kali Linux release is ready for download!

Hi there,

We're happy to announce that Maltego 4 is now (finally) ready for the masses! We're releasing the community (free) edition today and the Kali distros have been updated by the kind people from Offensive Security (thanks Dookie/Muts!).  In other words - we're ready to roll on a major upgrade of your favorite information visualization tool.


(click on the image above to see our very grown-up/proper promotional video of Sandra the 15 year old Dachshund and Maltego/Kali Linux. !(We plan to screen this at our booth at a major conference.))

Our decision to make CaseFile free with the release of Maltego 4 had some interesting side-effects. In CaseFile importing data from CSV/XLS was enabled. So too printing. And reporting. So when we made CaseFile free it did not make sense to limit the Kali/CE releases - you'd simply open CaseFile, import the data and save the graph - then open in CE.

So - bottom line - reporting/printing/CSV import is now enabled in the free release…

Abracadabra! It's Sho(dan) time!

Shodan -- used by pentesters, stalkeˆWˆWˆWresearchers and data scientists everywhere to analyze information about computers on the Internet. From webcams to SCADA to looking at where various SSL information in certificates can tie organisations together. It is a common tool used by many different people. We really wanted to get some Maltego goodness on that!

TL;DR -- You can get the Shodan transforms in the transform hub right now. To use all of the different transform options (or you can stick with the free options) you can simply click on settings in the transform hub after installing to add your API key.

There have been transforms written for Shodan before, but we really felt like they needed refreshing. So we took it upon ourselves to look at the information provided by Shodan and decide how we could integrate it into the needs of Maltego users. We first started by looking at what information was readily and easily available and then if it was useful in an n-th order graph. This is…

Visualising the Bitcoin Blockchain in Maltego

This post will provide a quick overview of our new Maltego transforms for visualizing the Bitcoin blockchain. There are 11 new transforms in the seed which use Blockchain.info’s API to query data from the blockchain.

(Screenshot's in this post are taken with the Maltego 4 beta release.)
Before we begin, it is important to have an understanding of how Bitcoin and their transactions work so I will start with an overview of some of the main concepts:
Bitcoin Overview
Bitcoin address: Bitcoin addresses are transaction endpoints that are used to send Bitcoin to another person. A person can generate as many addresses as they want and people should (which they often don’t) use a new address for every transaction that is made. An address is represented with a 26-35 sequence of alphanumeric characters and looks like this: 1BvBMSEYstWetqTFn5Au4m4GFg7xJaNVN2. For a more in-depth explanation of Bitcoin addresses you can have a look at the Bitcoin Wiki here.
