There are couple of transforms that use search engines - all of them very similar. The basic recipe with these transforms are as follows:
Maltego will sometimes give you results that seem plain wrong. You need to keep in mind that the application will get pretty desperate when it does not get results. So - when you are searching for a person called "Vaxynutus Grabounill" and that person simply left no marks on the Internet Maltego will eventually go after a search term "VG" - with a super low confidence - but you will still get some results. These results could seem completely off the mark, but should have very low weights. Always look at the weights.
Some entities are hard to parse. Telephone numbers are notoriously hard to parse. There is always a trade-off between missing numbers and parsing non-telephone numbers as phone numbers. With the current transform we hope to have reach the optimal balance.
Starting with a phone number the transfrom uses a search engine to find email addresses related to that phone number.
Phone Number ==> Related Emails
==> To Email Address [using Search Engine]
We have the contact number for Linode support. We would also like to find email addresses that we can use to contact their support staff. Running the transfrom on their phone number we get emaill addresses that appear alongside the phone number.
