Google Hack

Yesterday i came through this book O'Reilly publication
i was shocked to notice the capabilitied of the Google as mentioned there

i am sure one can use it to hack not only simple sites but the Popular domains even

May add the tips if Administrator allows...

Since "google hacking" has become more popular, most web masters have learned to implement the robots.txt file where they don't want google to look. Also ftp's that have illict files on them have recently added passwords to protect their files, and it has become fairly useless to hack google anymore Neutral. Granted the risks are very little, and the "hacks" in the O' Reilly books are more for an educational purpose, and teach how to stop this from happening to your site, as well as how to seriously refine your search using these "hacks" Neutral, it is still possible, and sometimes you may strike gold and get what you are looking for, such as coupons for online purchases Neutral or in a more mallicious manner, get passwords from an unsecure forum Neutral.

... Are you guys referring to the blackhat SEO technique known as "Google Bowling", where you setup remote pages that will "lower a site's ranking in Google"?

l don't believe that is what he is talking about, and it is most certaintly not what l am Neutral. l am talking about using commands such as "intitle:index.of "parent directory" *.php" to steal files, the extension can be changed to search for other things too, such as .mp3's Neutral. l feel it is alright to post this since music piracy by this is obsolete and typically yields searching through pages of google for an hour to find every FTP you look in to have a password Neutral.

PS: Forgive me if l should not have posted this code, and please edit it if this is the case.

You can't really hack into a website using Google. Only for reconnaissance (gain more information about the website), and then (maybe...) take it to a more 'higher' level. You can also search for an unsecure website with vulnerabilities, but you definately can't gain access. You do that by entering a specific Google search function (usually more than 1). This is actually legitimate, as long as you stick to Google and don't go further. Razz

excuse me, but when you use google to take a list of passwords to a site that requires you to pay for a membership, and then use that info to hijack an account, that is pretty illegal sounding to me Neutral even just getting the file, or even looking at it has a sort of "Breaking and entering" ring about it Neutral.

What I mean is that the Google search functions are legally okay to use, that's why they are there (to search). As I said: 'as long as you stick to Google and don't go further'. If you Googled and found a whole list of password, don't go and click the link, but be a good boy (or girl) and report to the site admin. But it is very, very rare that you could actually find anything. Note: I'm not a lawyer, so find a real one if you need advice. Angel

Yes, it is quite easy to manuipulate google, and this is somewhat intentional l believe as it makes refining your search extremely easy Neutral
