Lazy BlackHat Presentations Crawler

Many infosec professionals joined Las Vegas to attend the BlackHat security conference. As I’m not part of those lucky people so I’m waiting for the presentations (they are published when the talk is completed). But I don’t have time to lose sitting in front of my computer and pressing F5… So let’s crawl them automatically…

curl -s\ 
| egrep '*\.pdf' \
| awk -F '"' '{ print $4 }' \
| while read URL
  F=$(basename $URL)
  if [ ! -r $F ]; then
     curl -s -o $F $URL
     echo "Scrapped $f"

Quick and dirty but it works…
