Fun with Google

I'm doing some self education with security testing again. It's been a while. I'm back to Hacker High School working the lessons.

Today, it's fun with Google. I can't hack any real sites, so I thought I would try to find stuff on some of my sites. I found a lot of good detail by reading Google Hacking Mini-Guide by Johnny Long.

Even something so simple as the following can return a lot.

allintitle: "index of" xls

I couldn't find a problem with any of my sites, but that's probably because they are so poorly designed that Google can't even index them properly.

This is a lot of fun and a bit addictive. I recommend turning Safesearch on if you have an aversion to elicit material.
