Black Hat Briefings, Japan 2004 [Audio] Presentations from the security conference
"This presentation explores the explosive growth of a technique known as ""Google Hacking"". When the modern security landscape includes such heady topics as ""blind SQL injection"" and ""integer overflows"", it's refreshing to see such a deceptively simple tool bent to achieve such amazing results; this is hacking in the purest sense of the word. Attendees will learn how to torque Google to detect SQL injection points and login portals, execute portscans and CGI scans, fingerprint web servers, locate incredible information caches such as firewall and IDS logs, password databases, SQL dumps and much more - all without sending a single packet to the target! Borrowing the techniques pioneered by malicious ""Google hackers"", this talk aims to show security practitioners how to properly protect clients from this often overlooked and dangerous form of information leakage.The speaker, Johnny Long, maintains the Internet's most comprehensive database of Google exposures on his website.Johnny Long did not develop his skills within the hallowed halls of higher learning but rather by spending way too many late nights huddled in front of his computer, developing his anti-social tendencies.Mr Long (Johnny's professional alter-ego) has previously presented at SANS and other computer security conferences nationwide. In addition, he has presented before several government alphabet-soup entities including three starting with the letter 'A', four starting with the letter 'D', a handful starting with the letters 'F' and 'S' and two starting with the today's letter, the letter 'N'. During his career as an attack and penetration specialist, Mr Long has performed active network and physical security assessments (one in the cube is worth twenty on the net) for hundreds of government and commercial clients.Johnny Long is the Author of 'Penetration Testing with Google', available December 2004 from Syngress Publishing"
