Oracle exposures and Google Hacking

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting
Don Burleson


After reading ?Google Hacking for Penetration Testers?, Oracle professionals will come-away, eyes wide-open to the exposures at internet-enabled Oracle databases.  If you have a web-enabled Oracle database, you need to take-heed!

When the powerful Googlebot crawls a web site it can expose many Oracle-related vulnerabilities and exposures.  For example, just run the Google search below to identify dozens of web-sites with a iSQL*Plus interface, the first-step by a hacker who is interested in launching a buffer overflow attack on your Oracle database:

If you want the short-course, in this presentation we see the Johnny Long expose the huge power of Google as an intrusion tool:

There is also an excellent discussion of Google hacking for penetration testers at the red-database-security web site:

The most frightening section from the above link are the Google searches that can be used to detect if a web site is hosting SQL*Forms, Oracle Discoverer of Oracle Reports, the first-step in a hack attack:

This is an extremely powerful technique, and every Oracle professional should run these Google commands to see if a improper permission setting (e.g. 744) might expose your Oracle database to a hack attack:
