The command you provided is executed using feroxbuster, a web content discovery tool. Here is a breakdown of the command and its components:

  1. feroxbuster: This is the command to run the feroxbuster tool.

  2. --url "${https:--example-com}": This flag specifies the target URL to scan. In this case, it is set to "". The URL is enclosed within double quotation marks "${...}".

  3. --wordlist ${filename}: This flag configures feroxbuster to use a wordlist file for directory and file discovery. The ${filename} is a placeholder that should be replaced with the actual wordlist file path.

  4. --no-recursion: This flag instructs feroxbuster not to follow discovered directories recursively. It means that it will only scan the top-level directories and files, rather than recursively scanning through subdirectories.

  5. --proxy "${http:--127-0-0-1:8080}": This flag specifies the proxy to use during the scanning process. In this case, it is set to "". The proxy is also enclosed within double quotation marks "${...}".
