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.

Right after reading what we shared in our internal list, this information and a little bit of Github Hacking proved that GitHub is a Disneyland of information leakage. We tried a lot of different searches and some interesting or I could say, VERY INTERESTING, as you see below.

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”:

stars:>1000 forks:>100 extension:php "eval(preg_replace("

We searched for big projects who have more than 1000 stars, 100 forks, files with PHP extension and a possible flaw that allows Remote Code Execution.

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.
