Github Hacking for fun and… sensitive data search!

Conviso Research and Development Team is usually reading thousands and thousands of information daily and we make some filters and pay attention to some special words. We saw a very interesting post at Full Disclosure about advanced GitHub Search.

Private Key

 

 


FTP information

 

E-mail information

MySQL Password / History

 

How about finding some possible 0days? Backdoors? Hell yeah! It’s possible too.
Check out this GitHub “Dork”:

You can check the code and download it from here (but keep in mind that it is still in beta version).

Take care about what information you share. Lots of sensitive information could probably be over there. Search for information about your company before the bad guys do.
