Forget Google Hacking, introducing Live Search Hacking.

First They will Download MSN Search SDK which includes sample app that looks like this:

They will also get the MSN search ID here

Then They will add some more functionality that will enable them to:

1. Directly navigate to the matching URL

2. Directly navigate to the matching URL while injecting, say, single quote – this should generate errors and hopefully expose implementation details that will help them further attack you

3. Do bullet 2 in batch so They can start it before They go to sleep and in the morning They will have all error pages cached for offline investigation

Like this:

 How to get protected?

The whole story is here and called Security Engineering

Specifically for our case, input validation and exception handling best practices are your friends at Security Guidelines: ASP.NET 2.0

    Dude! you are using word hack as cracking or injecting but I think the meaning of the word hack in "Google hacks" is completely different, did you ever read : How to become hacker ?

    hackers build things, crackers break them.

    Mani, so you say you do not need to do Exception Handling properly?
    All I wanted to point here is that he who does not do proper exception handling will be descovered soon and then hacked
    Makes sense?

    You missed Mani's point. He had nothing to say about the content. His point was in you association of it to the book Google Hacks and to the word hack in general. You should consider his point. It is a good one. Your misuse of them degrades you main point.

    Jay, although I am not convinced about the misuse I can accept your and Mani's point. The major point was to show immplication of not implementing proper exception handling rather teach "how to hack using Google Hacking". To me it is semantics which of less importance. Hackers, spammers, crackers, cyber criminals – call it what ever you want. I turn to developers – "folks, do proper exception handling, ….please. You build applications that manage my bank account"

    aliki, We got the point. I am doing Exception Handling and parameter checking in my code to prevent injection. I am a developer. from and sql server points of view, we just need to use sql parameters in our code, and set value of CustomErrors in web.config Off, to avoid injection.

    Interesting stuff on Web Site Hacking. I was searching online on Google on how to penetrate different websites. Is it possible to crack open Google, and modify other links on Search Engine Listings.

    Jon, this blog is about how to defend and not how to hack. Would love to comment accordingly
    P.S. this blog is not popular that much so i do not think it will bring your site too much traffic 😉
