    I can confirm that TheHarvester Ver. 1.6 does return results with the usual ;

    Code:
    cd /pentest/enumeration/theharvester/
    ./theharvester.py -d hotmail.com -l 100 -b google

    Total results: 38

    Hang on, I didnt think I updated it manually (other than using the usual apt-get update && apt-get upgrade) and the version I have installed is 1.6 ??

    Either it came in with an apt-get update / upgrade or I am doing too much whilst having a few beers..

    Theharvester was indeed updated on your system. Look at your path pentest/enumeration/theharvester/ and the OP's /pentest/enumeration/google/theharvester
    We moved it up one level out of google since it uses more than just google.
