Google hacking for fun and profit

In 2002, Johnny Long began to collect interesting Google search queries that uncovers vulnerable systems or sensitive information, and calls them “Google dorks”.

We identify with “Google Dorking” the method for finding vulnerable targets using the google dorks in order to obtain usernames and passwords, email lists, sensitive documents and website vulnerabilities.


Ethical hackers can use the “Google Dorking” to improve system security, but also a black hat could use this technique for illegal activities, including cyber terrorism, industrial espionage, and identity theft.
