I made a visit to null byte and found that there is not a complete tutorial about the Google Dorks, so I felt the need for this tutorial, and seeing that there are many newbies around, so here’s a tutorial that will teach you how to use Google to hack.
HISTORY of Google Dorks
The concept of “Google Hacking” dates back to 2002 when Johnny Long began to collect interesting Google search queries that uncovered vulnerable systems and/or sensitive information disclosures – labeling them google dorks. some people call it google hacking. Google: If you still do not know what is Google, then you need to take a crash course in “how to use the internet” Dork: Someone who has odd interests, and is often silly at times. A dork is also someone who can be themselves and not care what anyone thinks, In my opinion, A Google dork is an employee who unknowingly exposes sensitive corporate information on the Internet. As a passive attack method, Google dorking can return usernames and passwords, email lists, sensitive documents, personally identifiable financial information (PIFI) and website vulnerabilities. That information can be used for any number of illegal activities, including cyberterrorism, industrial espionage, identity theft and cyberstalking
As well as programming, google dorks also have its operators, I will not be able to show all operators but here are the most commonly used Operators. Let’s take a look at the special Google search operators that are used to construct those high powered google hack search terms.
Specifying intitle, will tell Google to show only those pages that have the term in their HTML title. For example intitle:”login page” will show those pages which have the term “login page” in the title text.
Similar to intitle, but looks for all the specified terms in the title.
Searches for the specified term in the URL. For example inurl:”login.php”.
Same as inurl, but searches for all terms in the URL.
Searches for specific file types. filetype: pdf will look for pdf files in websites. Similarly filetype:txt looks for files with extension .txt
Similar to filetype. ext:pdf finds pdf extension files.
Searches the content of the page. Somewhat like a plain google search. For example intext:”index of /”.
Similar to intext, but searches for all terms to be present in the text.
Limits the search to a specific site only. site:nullbyte.com
THE FORMULA OF GOOGLE DORKS
Dorks: They are like search criteria in which a search engine returns results related to your dork.
The process can be a little time consuming, but the outcome will be worth it after learning how to use dorks.
Basic Formula of dork,
So you would normally understand it like this:
“inurl” = input URL
“domain” = your desired domain ex. .gov
“dorks” = the dork of your choice
Here is another example of that
You can use following words instead of inurl :
You can use the intitle to find anything in the title of the website. Which also could be useful to find downloads or anything else.
intitle: index of mp3
The inurl basically looks for anything after the: in the site URLs.
You can find literally everything using intext, you could even use the inurl dorks whit this.
intext:”Design & Developed By Seawind Solution Pvt.Ltd.”
Google will give you all the websites created by IT Masons that recently have bypass Admin Page Vulnerability in some websites, to try just choose a target from Google and add this to the URL /adminpanel/
And fill username and password like the information below :
Username : ‘=’ ‘OR’
Password : ‘=’ ‘OR’
and you will get the admin panel of the website some example:
Google will define this message and will look for what had this error for example,
define:”sql syntax error”
Obviously, when we will use it, Google will look for a site.
Google will look for any site related to wonder how too.
It will look for the phone number related to me, so use your victim’s name or yours instead.
Google will look on google maps for your search.
Google has an online library store. If you want to find interesting books use this dork.
This will look for any book Google has indexed with java language in it.
Used for froogle search instead of google.
Google looks for anything you inputted but only information about string which you have put next to info: .
Above dork will show you a lot of things about firefox like what is firefox etc.
You can find information about movies on google using this dork.
movie: watch Transformers online
You can find information about weather on google using this dork.
weather: 01/08/2015 London
This will look for anything related to what you have entered next to related: .
Google’s response with sites about hacking skills.
This one will works better instead of only looking in search URL, it will also look in the site for URL’s that possibly are vulnerable.
This is very useful I would say even more then inurl.
Vulnerability Approach :
Once you search website using above dorks, now its time to check whether the website is vulnerable to SQL injection or not, we simply put in a quote ” ‘ ” at the end of the url address.
So our site will look like this,
- SOME EXTRAS
As far as I researched Google Dorks can help us getting the data from many websites.
These are some Google Dorks which can affect our online business:
site:.com intitle:”Thank You For Your Order” intext: Click Here to Download
site:.com intitle:”Thank You For Your Purchase” intext: Click Here to Download
intitle: Thank you for your Purchase! intext: PLR OR MRR OR Package OR Bonus
inurl:/thankyou.html intitle: Thank you for your order! intext: Click Here to Download
Google dorks are very important, so I advise before you start your exploits against a particular victim the best way is to use google and see what you can find about the victim, and believe me, byt using google, a lot of times I did not even turn on Linux kali, by simple search on google, I found the password of my victim.
