The Google Hacking Database: A Key Resource to Exposing Vulnerabilities

Kiran Karnad, MIMOS Berhad

We all know the power of Google—or do we? Two types of people use Google: normal users like you and me, and the not-so-normal users—the hackers. What types of information can hackers collect from Google? How severe is the damage they can cause? Is there a way to circumvent this hacking? As  a security tester, Kiran Karnad uses the GHDB (Google Hacking Database) to ensure their product will not be the next target for hackers. Kiran describes how to effectively use Google the way hackers do, using advanced operators, locating exploits and finding targets, network mapping, finding user names and passwords, and other secret stuff. Kiran provides a recipe of five simple security searches that work. Learn how to automate the Google Hacking Database using Python so security tests can be incorporated as a part of the SDLC for the next product you develop.
