Google Dorks: An Easy Way of Hacking
The Google Search Engine finds answer to our questions, which is helpful in our daily lives. You can search for your school assignments, reports, presentations and more.
Before I start the tutorial on using use Google Dorks in Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking, I’m going to share a definition of Google Dork queries that I saw on techtarget.com:
A Google Dork query, sometimes just referred to as a dork, is a search string that uses advanced search operators to find information that is not readily available on a website.
In other words, we can use Google Dorks to find vulnerabilities, hidden information and access pages on certain websites. Because Google has a searching algorithm and indexes most websites, it can be useful to a hacker to find vulnerabilities on the target.
