Introduction to Google Hacking

Dev, Hacking / Security, News, Web , , , , , , , ,

I recently just taught my first class on EduFire, called “Introduction to Google Hacking”. From the feedback I’ve been getting, people seemed to enjoy it, so I’ll continue teaching it. I don’t know about the future, but for right now, I’ve decided I’m going to make it free! Why? Because I believe this is information everyone should know!

Introduction to Google Hacking

What is Google Hacking?

Google Hacking is the process of using advanced operators in the Google Search engine in the effort to return more precise search results.


What will be covered?

In this class we will cover the following:

1. What is Google Hacking?
2. How to Build Advanced Search Queries.
3. How to use Google as a Proxy Service.
4. How to find Security Flaws using Google.
5. How to Protect Yourself from Google.

and more…

I bet you never knew Google could be used for so much!

Google Search is a lot more in depth than you think.


This class will be broken down into two classes:

Class One:

The first part of this series will cover how you can use advanced operators in Google Search to find exactly what you’re looking for rather than the boring old “normal search results”.

Class Two:

The second part of this series will cover how to use those advanced search operators to find a variety of security flaws out there on the web, proving how Google doesn’t only index the good, it can index the bad. Rest assured, you will also be shown ways that you can make sure Google isn’t indexing your sites security flaws or even just things you may not want out there for everyone to find.


All you need to bring is your self!

This is going to be quite a basic class, so no previous knowledge is required.
