Using Google To Your Advantage
Google is one of the biggest companies now a days. It provides you with so many services that no one could imagine the internet without it. Google’s search engine is what I am going to focus on in this article since that is what Google Hacking is about. The term actually refers to using Google’s search engine in an advanced way to find sensitive information. If you haven’t done any Google Hacking yet then take a look at this hacking article.
Automated Google Hacking
Since Google Hacking can be quite time consuming people from the Cult of the Dead Cow wrote a program which automates this task. It is a pretty cool tool but the bad part is that you can not send queries that often. So do NOT use the program too often or send to many queries since that may cause Google to ban you!
It is still worth taking a look at especially for administrators to scan whether their websites give away too much information. I’ve used Google Hacking myself several times and found some really really sensitive information so Google Hacking is not something you should underestimate.
