Google Hack on Document

Beside using google hack query to look for songs and movies. I’d like to give an example query on how to use google hack to search document across the web.

As an example, let say we want to look books about “Angels and Demons”, i can give two query samples that help you search books about it. But let me give a warning before that if we want to use this query, the result in google is 98% filled with illegal use of copyrighted material, so proceed with cautious and another warning is make sure that your PC is installed with the latest antivirus and dont ever use this query with Internet Explorer Browser, because IE is prone to Cross-Site Scripting(XSS). We never know the search result site is infected or not.

The first query to look for document that have Angels and Demons keyword is

-inurl:(htm | html | php ) intitle:”index of” +”last modified” +”parent directory” +description +size +( pdf | lit | rtf ) “Angels and Demons”

And the other is the one that is more accurate but lesser result because the search query is targeted on the ebook or ebooks named folder.

-inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:”index of” +(“/ebooks”|”/book”) +(chm|pdf|zip) +”Angels and Demons” “Last Modified”

To use the query we could directly click on the query above or u could copy paste the query on to google search bar. To modified the query in to anything that we want to search, just copy the file extension that we want to search, like if we want to look for a microsoft word document, just add or change the (chm|pdf|zip) keyword into (doc) or (chm|pdf|zip|doc).

The ( | ) sign resembles the meaning or, so if the query use (chm|pdf|doc) it meant to search file that have a file extension of thebookthatyouwant.chm or thebookthatyouwant.pdf or thebookthatyouwant.doc

Like i said before about google hack, there’s a lot of website that offer this kind of function to search books, songs or a movies. So why do we need to learn this query to look for books etc on google? The purpose to learn this tutorial is just a back-up plan, in case the favorite website that u visit is down or filled with spam.

Yup there’s a high probability that the site that offer this kind of function can be filled with spam/malware/virus, base on my experience there are 4 site that was my favorites happen to have virus, the site is down or change into a must register site.

Here a couple of website that are my preferred site to search specifically on pdf document

In case you’re not sure about the safety in using this site, just use the latest Firefox browser with NoScript add-on, or use Opera browser instead.

Google Hack?

My first post on August 2006 in this site is about google hack, but the site got hack on January 2007 and wipe out the entire database, so i had rebooted this site on February 2007 with also the first post about google hack

But in the era of everything instant, do u want to remember those horrific code to hack search using google?
here are an example of one in searching a Alicia Keys songs.


-inurl:(htm | html | php | asp | aspx | pl | py | cgi) intitle:”index of” +”last modified” +”parent directory” +description +size +( avi | mp3 | wmv | mov ) “alicia keys”

With this code, Google will search all listed open directory with the song type MP3 and all movie type .avi, .wmv, .mov related with the keyword Alicia Keys. But for god sake there is an easier way to remember this rather than typing it all again. There are couple of site that use google hack in retrieving those files u needed. but this is the site that i preferred the most in using google hack.

http://g2p.org

this are the first site that i remembered i use that offer an ease of searching using google searches


So what does g2p do?

-G2P (Google to Person) uses some crafty Google searches to help locate open directories or otherwise shared files. These files have been uploaded and shared by nice people. Without them, our searches wouldnt work.

The song that i search usually accurate, but be careful sometimes those site are infected with viruses but google will warn u if there’s that kind of activity going on in that site or the easier use noscript add-on in ur firefox.

Here are a couple of site that features offer similar function that are my favorites
http://rapidlibrary.com (Rapidshare search engine)
http://ebookee.com/ (Rapidshare listing but only on ebooks)
http://www.pdfgeni.com/ (pdf or document seach engine)

U could see other web service search engines listing in Makeuseof Directory listing on search engines to look for similar function.

Google hack query Summary (yes, another one… )

On January the 8Th, my website crash, and the database couldn’t be recovered. So i lost all of my writing…, well i could recover it, but I’m just too lazy to do it :P . It’s just 15-20 writings and I want to start a fresh new blog with new template off course. This kind of accident teach me that i should prepare backups of my writing once a week or more often. Well no pain no gain.


First of all I’d like to compile all writing i read about googling as a reminder for my self. there’s a couple web site that help me a lot on this writing, all of them l’ll wrote it in the last paragraph in this writing.
Usually in websites there’s a directory that are open in public. not all of them but a lots of them usually store interesting film, music or even books. In this directory there’s a generated note that this is an open directory when u open it and contain a list of files in that current directory. yada yada yada…so if u want to check it it use this query or just click it:

-inurl(html|htm|php|asp|aspx|pl|py|cgi|tcl) intitle:”index of” + “last modified” + “parent directory” + description + size

With the above google query it’ll show all open query, but if u want to connect it with some topic or some person, let say Jessica Simpson, just added in the back of the query so it will become like this:

-inurl:(htm|html|php|asp|aspx|pl|py|cgi) intitle:”index of” +”last modified” +”parent directory”+description+size +”jessica simpson”

it could be shown if there’s any files that are being named Jessica Simpson. The naming convention could be different inevery place so try your luck. if u want more specific type of file, like a video or an mp3 of jessica simpson just add mp3 or avi.

-inurl:(htm|html|php|asp|aspx|pl|py|cgi) intitle:”index of” +”last modified” +”parent directory” +description +size +( avi | mp3 | wmv | mov ) “jessica simpson”

in case u want an ebook like Da Vinci Code u could use this query, with a lot of type of ebook.

-inurl:(htm | html | php | asp | aspx | pl | py | cgi) intitle:”index of” +”last modified” +”parent directory” +description +size +( pdf | lit | rtf ) “da vinci code”

Most of this writing i get from Google Tutor, u could look the popular writing of this site is Voyeur-Heaven, all about Google search in here and Google Tutor’s Google Search Manual. Others sources are from googleguide.com about the advance operators. There’s an official help center also, u could look it up in Google Web Search Features, The Essentials of Google Search and Google Advanced Operators.
Actually the first time i learn about google hack is when i read an article from johnny ihackstuff, he wrote a wonderfull articles on google hack, about getting a credit card number and get almost everything that are available in the web. That a long time ago, right know he bundled the articles bout google into Google Hacking Database (GHDB) .

…or the easiest way to search MP3 or e-books, u could use G2P, website that use Google hacking to locate MP3s.
