Google Hacks Tricks and Techniques 101

Excellent tricks and techniques of Google Hacks:

ws_ftp.ini is a configuration file for a popular FTP client that stores usernames, (weakly) encoded passwords, sites and directories that the user can store for later reference. These should not be on the web!

That’s some google hacks good stuff. Just copy/paste the text into your own WS FTP ini file and you’re good as gold (assuming you’re using the same version). Don’t forget – even if they have taken the file offline, use the cache:FULL_URL/wsftp.ini” to see the contents.

Probably one of the best google hacks exploits I have seen in a long time, when I did it there were about 20 vulnerable computers, just recently there was 4, so I hope whitehats got to this before anyone else. Really nice !!

To see results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

intitle:index.of ws_ftp.ini

==============================================

Frontpage.. very nice clean google hacks search results listing !! I magine with me that you can steal or know the password of any web site designed by “Frontpage”. But the file containing the password might be encrypted; to decrypt the file download the program ” john the ripper”.

To see results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

“# -FrontPage-” inurl:service.pwd

==============================================

This google hacks searches the password for “Website Access Analyzer”, a Japanese software that creates webstatistics.

To see results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

“AutoCreate=TRUE password=*”

==============================================

This google hacks is a query to get inline passwords from search engines (not just Google), you must type in the query followed with the the domain name without the .com or .net.

To see results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

“http://*:*@www” bangbus or “http://*:*@www”bangbus

Or

http://bob:[email protected]

Or

http://admin:*@www

==============================================

This google hacks search is a cleanup of a previous entry by J0hnny. It uses “parent directory” to avoid results other than directory listings.

WS_FTP.ini is a configuration file for a popular win32 FTP client that stores usernames and weakly encoded passwords.

To see results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

filetype:ini ws_ftp pwd

Or

“index of/” “ws_ftp.ini” “parent directory”

==============================================

Microsoft Frontpage extensions appear on virtually every type of scanner. In the late 90’s people thought they where hardcore by defacing sites with Frontpage. Today, there are still vulnerable servers found with Google.

An attacker can simply take advantage from administrators who ‘forget’ to set up the policies for Frontpage extensions. An attacker can also search for ‘filetype:pwd users’.

To see results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

filetype:pwd service

==============================================

Not all of these pages are administrator’s access databases containing usernames, passwords and other sensitive information, but many are! And much adminstrated passwords and user passwords, a lot of emails and the such too.

To see results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

allinurl: admin mdb

==============================================

DCForum’s password file. This file gives a list of (crackable) passwords, usernames and email addresses for DCForum and for DCShop (a shopping cart program(!!!). Some lists are bigger than others, all are fun.

To see results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

allinurl:auth_user_file.txt

==============================================

This google hacks search brings up sites with “config.php” files. To skip the technical discussion, this configuration file contains both a username and a password for an SQL database.

Most sites with forums run a PHP message base. This file gives you the keys to that forum, including FULL ADMIN access to the database. To see view the PHP files; there in lies the catch.

Browsers are made to process the commands of PHP before display, so if no commands, nothing to show. You can’t use that persay to get into the config file, but it would show potential threats if someone got into server anyway. (If that happens you’re basically boned anyway, not much around that.

To see results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

intitle:index.of config.php

By the way, to know how to view the PHP file contents, you can use this code:

intitle:”Index of” phpinfo.php

==============================================

These files contain ColdFusion source code. In some cases, the pages are examples that are found in discussion forums. However, in many cases these pages contain live sourcecode with usernames, database names or passwords in plaintext.

To see results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

filetype:cfm “cfapplication name” password

==============================================

FlashFXP offers the easiest and fastest way to transfer any file using FTP, providing an exceptionally stable and robust program that you can always count on to get your job done quickly and efficiently. There are many, many features available in FlashFXP.

The flashFXP.ini file is its configuration file and may contain usernames/passwords and everything else that is needed to use FTP.

To see google hacks results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

filetype:ini inurl:flashFXP.ini

==============================================

The encryption method used in WS_FTP is _extremely_ weak. These files can be found with the “index of” keyword or by searching directly for the PWD= value inside the configuration file.

There is an easy way to decrypt the hash, use the decryptor at:

Or

http://www.hispasec.com/directorio/laboratorio/Software/ws_ftp.html

To see google hacks results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

filetype:ini ws_ftp pwd

==============================================

These files contain cleartext usernames and passwords, as well as the sites associated with those credentials. Attackers can use this information to log on to that site as that user.

To see google hacks results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

filetype:log inurl:”password.log”
==============================================

Web Wiz Forums is a free ASP Bulletin Board software package. It uses a Microsoft Access database for storage. The installation instructions clearly indicate to change the default path and filename (admin/database/wwForum.mdb).
vendor: http://www.webwizguide.info/web_wiz_forums/

The forum database contains the members passwords, either encrypted or in plain text, depending on the version.

Please note: this search is proof that results can stay in Google’s index for a long time, even when they are not on the site any longer. Currently only 2 out of 9 are actually still downloadable by an attacker.

To see google hacks results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

filetype:mdb wwforum

==============================================

VNC is a remote-controlled desktop product. Depending on the configuration, remote users may not be presented with a password. Even when presented with a password, the mere existance of VNC can be important to an attacker, as is the open port of 5800.

To see google hacks results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

“VNC Desktop” inurl:5800

By the way, New version of VNC changed title to VNC Viewer so now you can search for

intitle:vnc.desktop inurl:5800

==============================================

linux vpns store their usernames and passwords for CHAP authentification in a file called “chap-secrets” where the usernames and the passwords are in cleartext.

To see google hacks results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

==============================================

WS_FTP.LOG can be used in many ways to find more information about a server. This query is very flexible, just substitute “+htpasswd” for “+FILENAME” and you may get several hits that you hadn’t seen with the ‘normal’ search.

Filenames suggested by the forum to explore are: phpinfo, admin, MySQL, password, htdocs, root, Cisco, Oracle, IIS, resume, inc, sql, users, mdb, frontpage, CMS, backend, https, editor, intranet . The list goes on and on..

A different approach might be “allinurl: “some.host.com” WS_FTP.LOG filetype:log” which tells you more about who’s uploading files to a specific site.

To see results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

+htpasswd +WS_FTP.LOG filetype:log

Google is so smart, it’s scary sometimes. I has found another interesting (to say the least) Google use.
I just ran across a pretty scary new google trick. It seems they have just recently added number span searching to their engine. Take a look at this example:

To see results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

visa 4356000000000000..4356999999999999

Basically, what this search does is search for the word “visa” [credit card] with any numbers that fit within your query. i.e. any Visa credit card number with the first four digits 4356.
As you can see, Google has searched the entire range against its DB. Within minutes I found some crazy sites like this one. Now please know that Google didn’t create this tool to be used like this. It’s actually quite handy when used correctly. Just an FYI for all of you.

==============================================

Tired of websearching ? Want something to read ? You can find Ebooks (thousands of them) with this search..LIT files can be opened with Microsoft Reader (http://www.microsoft.com/reader/).

To see results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

filetype:lit lit (books|ebooks)

==============================================

Using Google, and some finely crafted searches we can find a lot of interesting information.

For Example we can find: Credit Card Numbers / Passwords / Software / MP3’s
…… (and on and on and on)Presented below is just a sample of interesting searches that we can send to google to obtain info that some people might not want us having.. After you get a taste using some of these, try your own crafted searches to find info that you would be interested in.
To see results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

intitle:”Index of” passwords modified

And

allinurl:auth_user_file.txt

And

“access denied for user” “using password”
And

“A syntax error has occurred” filetype:ihtml
And

allinurl: admin mdb
And

“ORA-00921: unexpected end of SQL command”
And

inurl:passlist.txt
And

“Index of /backup”
And

“Chatologica MetaSearch” “stack tracking:”
And

Amex Numbers: 300000000000000..399999999999999

And

MC Numbers: 5178000000000000..5178999999999999

And

visa 4356000000000000..4356999999999999

==============================================

Notice I am only changing the word after the parent directory, change it to what you want and you will get a lot of stuff.

“parent directory ” MP3 -xxx -html -htm -php -shtml -opendivx -md5 -md5sums

And

“parent directory ” Name of Singer or album -xxx -html -htm -php -shtml -opendivx -md5 -md5sums

Or

?intitle:index.of? mp3

You only need add the name of the song/artist/singer.
Example: ?intitle:index.of? mp3 jackson
==============================================

You can change the string to watever you want, ex. microsoft to adobe, iso to zip etc.

To see results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

==============================================

This will search for backup files (*.bak) created by some editors or even by the administrator himself (before activating a new version).

Every attacker knows that changing the extenstion of a file on a webserver can have ugly consequences.

see results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

filetype:bak inurl:”htaccess|passwd|shadow|htusers”

==============================================

Let’s pretend you need a serial number for windows xp pro. The key is the 94FBR code.. it was included with many MS Office registration codes so this will help you dramatically reduce the amount of ‘fake’ porn sites that trick you.
To see results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

“Windows XP Professional” 94FBR

By the way, don’t forget to change “Window sXP Professional” to any product you need its serial number.

==============================================

Notice this excellent trick. You can search for any product whether hardware or software (between any prices price: for example, $250.. $350 ).

To see results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

DVD player $250..350

By the way, don’t forget to change “DVD player” to any product you need to search for.

==============================================

At first glance, this search reveals even more examples of operating system users enabling the operating system default web server software. This is generally accepted to be a Bad Idea(TM) as mentioned in the previous example. However, the googleDork index on this particular category gets quite a boost from the fact that this particular screen should NEVER be seen by the general public. To quote the default index screen: “Any users attempting to connect to this site are currently receiving an ‘Under Construction page'” THIS is not the ‘Under Construction page.’ I was only able to generate this screen while sitting at the console of the server. The fact that this screen is revealed to the general public may indicate a misconfiguration of a much more insidious nature…

To see google hacks results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

intitle:”Welcome to Windows 2000 Internet Services”

==============================================

Suppose you want a certain song to a singer and you can not find it; by this trick you can find the song in the original directory of the original web site.

To see google hacks results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

By the way, don’t forget to change “Top Gun” to any song you need to search for.

==============================================

This is a fabulous link. This is the secret link of the web site “Google” to search for any “Crack” you need.

Just write the following link in the address bar:

http://www.googlecrack.com/WWW/

==============================================

By the way, for anyone who needs to have an account in the google mail for “One GigaByte”, go to the following address bar. You will receive within “36 hours” the confirmation mail for your registration:

http://www.googlemail.cjb.net/

Or from:

http://www.gmailforums.com/index.php

By the way, you can open your Google mail from your browser through this link:

http://toolbar.google.com/gmail-helper/

==============================================

Imagine that when you enter any web site, and you are surprised that when searching for any program in it you can not find it. By this fabulous trick, you can find the link for downloading any program in this site through any search engine.

For example, suppose you want to search for the program “Norton” in the web site www.download.com ; when you go to www.google.com and write the following code, you will be surprised that the “Google” search engine searches only in the site www.download.com. To do this:

Write in the address bar of the web browser this address: www.google.com.
When opening the web site; write in the search engine this code: “norton site: www.download.com”, and press the button search or “Enter”.

As mentioned earlier: the code is easy, you just write in the place of the word “Norton”; any word you need to search for in the site followed in the code.

The google hacks code again is….
norton site:www.download.com

By the way, you can practice this code at any search engine.

Another trick is that you can force the search engine of the “Google” web site to search for a certain category like “Linux” topics. When you add any category after the Google link and write any thing in the search engine, you will surprised that the site searched for Linux only.

For example, if you wrote the following google hackscode:
http://www.google.com/linux

As I mentioned in the code earlier, the site followed by the word “Linux”. So the web site is forced for searching for the Linux topics only all over the internet.

==============================================

Imagine that you can connect to another computer remotely through the internet from the feature called “Remote Desktop Web Connection”.

To see google hacks results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

intitle:”Remote Desktop Web Connection”

==============================================

Through this query you can find every web page “Google” has crawled for a specific site.

To see google hacks results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

Site: Microsoft.com

==============================================

Through this query, you can see web servers with default pages can serve as juicy targets.

To see google hacks results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

Intitle:test.page.for.apache “it worked”

==============================================

No one can deny that the directory listings can be a source of great information.

To see google hacks results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

Intitle:index.of/admin

==============================================

We will use this query to locate additional servers, subtract common hostnames from the query.

To see google hacks results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

Site: Microsoft.com – Site:www.Microsoft.com

==============================================

From this query you can get huge user names and passwords from huge sites for free.

To see google hacks results; just write in the (http://www.google.com/) search engine the code:

“Welcome to *” “Your password is *”

==============================================

“NetLife” Exclusive: Security hole found in “Gmail”
An Israeli hacker reveals: A security hole in “Gmail” allows the compromise of users’ email boxes without the need of a password Nitzan Weidenfeld, Nana NetLife Magazine.

So you’ve got a “Gmail” mail account? Or maybe you’ve just received an invitation? Well, we have some bad news for you: Your mail box is exposed. A major security hole in Google’s mail service, allows full access to user accounts, without the need of a password.

“Everything could get publicly exposed” your received mails might be readable, as well as all of your sent mail, and furthermore anyone could send and receive mail under your name”, thus reveals Nir Goldshlagger, an Israeli hacker, on an exclusive interview with “Nana NetLife” Magazine. “Even more alarming”, he explains, “is the fact that the hack itself is quite simple. All that is needed of the malicious hacker, beside knowledge of the specific technique, is quite basic computer knowledge, the victim’s username and that’s it, he’s inside”.

When approached, Google admitted to the security flaw. Google also assured us that this matter is being resolved, and that “the company will go to any length to protect its users”.

The flaw which was discovered by Goldshlagger and was tested many times by Nana’s editorial board had shown an alarming success rate. In order not to further jeopardize mail boxes’ owners, we will only disclose that the process is based upon a security breach in the service’s identity authentication. It allows the hacker to “snatch” the victims cookie file (a file planted in the victim’s computer used to identify him) using a seemingly innocent link (which directs to Gmail’s site itself). Once stolen, this cookie file allows the hacker to identify himself as the victim, without the need of a password. Even if the victim does change his password afterwards, it will be to no avail. “The system authenticates the hacker as the victim, using the stolen cookie file. Thus no password is involved in the authentication process. The victim can change his password as many times as he pleases, and it still won’t stop the hacker from using his box”, explains Goldshlagger.

Whether hackers have already used this method to compromise users’ accounts is unclear at the moment.

Matters are several times worse when it comes to a service such as “Gmail”. Besides the obvious blow to Google’s seemingly spotless image, we’re looking here at a major threat to anyone who has turned to “Gmail” as his major email box. “Because “Gmail” offers a gigabyte of storage, several times bigger than most other web based mail services, users hardly delete any old correspondence”, says Goldshlagger. “The result is a huge amount of mail accumulating in the users’ boxes, which frequently include bank notices, passwords, private documents and other files the user wanted to backup. Who ever takes a hold of this data, could literally take over the victim’s life and identity”.

“Ofer Elzam”, a security expert for “Aladdin”, who examined the security hole at “Nana’s Netlife” request, explains: “This is a major threat, for the following reasons: First; the users have no way of protecting themselves. Second; it’s quite easy to carry out, and third; it allows identity theft, which is nothing less than a serious danger to the victim”.

“On the bright side”, he adds, “its a good thing that this hole was found now, before the service was officially announced and offered to millions of users world-wide. I reckon it’s just a matter of time before an automatic tool is made, which would allow even the less computer-savvy people to exploit this hack. The damage, needless to say, could be huge”

Is there a way, after all, to protect ourselves in the face of this danger? Elzam does not bear good news on the matter. “The only immediate solution that comes to mind is not using “Gmail” to store any messages or files that might be maliciously used. At least until Google attends to this problem”.

I received a weird email last week and I forwarded it to the bug report. Guess that was the cookie link I talked about. I put it here:

Last Monday reported that a vulnerability in “GSuite”. A local user can obtain the target user’s “GMail” password.

It is reported that a local user with access to the target user’s ‘documents and settings\user name\Application Data\GSuite\’ folder can view the ‘settings.xml’ file, which contains the target user’s password in ASCII value encoded form. The password can be readily decoded.

Impact: A local user can obtain a target user’s GMail password.
Solution: No solution was available at the time of this entry. The vendor plans to include a fix in the next release.

Google Hacks tricks and techniques fullhack.me

Another google hacks tricks is that you can force the search engine of the “google” web site to search for a certain category like “Linux” topics. when you add any category after the google link and write any thing in the search engine, you will surprised that the site searched for linux only. For example, if you wrote the following code:

http://www.google.com/linux

As we mentioned in the code earlier, the site followed by the word “linux”. So the web site is forced for searching for the linux topics only all over the internet.
