Google Dorking For Digital Investigators

This week in cybersecurity from the editors at Cybercrime Magazine

Listen to the latest episode of “Ask Me Anything”

Sausalito, Calif. – Jun. 6, 2024

Google dorking is a sophisticated hacker technique that uses Google Search to uncover hidden information, according to Theresa Payton, former White House CIO and a globally recognized digital investigator and cybersecurity expert.

In the latest episode of “Ask Me Anything” on the Cybercrime Magazine Podcast sponsored by Pipl AMA, Payton illustrates the power of Google dorking with a real-world example of a case she was personally involved with. An investigator was able to dig deep using dorking  and he came up with enough data to keep an investigation going that may have otherwise ended.

It’s important to note that all results returned from Google dorking are found on publicly accessible documents, which Google has indexed, according to Splunk’s “Google Dorking: An Introduction for Cybersecurity Professionals.”
