Package: ReconCat

The Web Archive is a site that can show past versions of Web site pages. It provides a service that retrieves Web pages on different dates.

This way, it is possible to retrieve the contents of a given page as it was on past dates.

This package provides a command written in PHP that you can run from the command line console to retrieve many versions of the same. It can use threads to recover many pages faster.

The ability to retrieve past versions of a page can help detect changes caused by security incidents.

Security professionals can compare the versions of the same page to find pages that were changed and may need a new security auditing process to determine if people with bad intentions caused the changes.
