    Bug/Exploit Forum Monitoring Script

    As most people know by now, the official Bug/Exploit forum is a treasure trove of information. Unless I completely missed something, the official Forums don't let you sort by topic creation date. To deal with this, I made a super basic python script to notify me any time a new topic was added to the Bug/Exploit forum so that I could find anything major a lot faster. It's nothing special but it may save others the time of writing their own

    Code:
    import requests
    import datetime
    import time
    import json
    
    loaded_ids = []
    start_time = datetime.datetime.utcnow()
    print(f"Start Time: {start_time}")
    
    LATEST_BUG_URL = "https://forums.newworld.com/latest.json?ascending=false"
    
    while True:
        try:
            data = requests.get(LATEST_BUG_URL).json()
            topic_list = data["topic_list"]
            for topic in topic_list['topics']:
                post_time = datetime.datetime.strptime(topic["created_at"].split(".")[0], "%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S")
                if post_time > start_time and topic['id'] not in loaded_ids:
                    print(f"{post_time} | {topic['title']} | https://forums.newworld.com/t/{topic['slug']}/{topic['id']}")
                    loaded_ids.append(topic['id'])
    
        except KeyboardInterrupt:
            exit()
        except Exception as e:
            print(f"Error: {e}")
    
        time.sleep(10)
    Instructions to Run:
    1. Install python
    2. Save code as whatever (nw_monitor.py)
    3. Install the requests library (pip install requests)
    4. Run script: python nw_monitor.py

    It'll check for updates every 10 seconds.

    This thing is amazing. I am no python programmer so had to google how to use python and install the library but otherwise it works like a charm. I just want to keep an eye on the forums for a couple of days because of all the dodgy stuff being discovered.

    +1 works wonders as long as you can handle potential python library issues (was running some wrong kernel idk, easy enough to fix)
    I have a signature
