Supply a list of dorks and, optionally, one of the following:
- a user (
- a file with a list of users (
- an organization (
- a file with a list of organizations (
- a repo (
You can also pass:
- an output directory to store results (
- a filename to store valid items, if your users or org file may contain nonexistent users/orgs (
All input files (dorks, users, or orgs) should be newline-separated.
Clone the repository, then run
pip install -r requirements.txt
The only required parameter is the dorks file (
-d). See techguan’s github-dorks.txt for ideas.
If an output directory is specified, a file will be created for each dork in the dorks list, and results will be saved there as well as printed. Only use an empty/nonexistent directory or it will be cleared and its contents replaced.
If your users or orgs files haven’t already been filtered to remove non-existent users/orgs or those without any public code, it’s highly recommended that you pass in a
-vif). This will filter out any invalid users/orgs when searching for the first dork, and avoid searching against them for subsequent dorks. The output file can also then be used as the input users/orgs file to speed up later script runs.
python gh-dork.py -d dorks.txt # Basic usage
python gh-dork.py -d dorks.txt -u molly # Search repos of a specific user
python gh-dork.py -d dorks.txt -uf users.txt # Search repos of all users in the list
python gh-dork.py -d dorks.txt -uf users.txt -vif valid_users.txt # Search repos of all users in the list, filtering out nonexistent users
python gh-dork.py -d dorks.txt -org github # Search repos of a specific organization
python gh-dork.py -d dorks.txt -of orgs.txt # Search repos of all orgs in the list
python gh-dork.py -d dorks.txt -of orgs.txt -vif valid_orgs.txt # Search repos of all orgs in the list, filtering out nonexistent orgs
pyth on gh-dork.py -d dorks.txt -r molly/gh-dork # Search the specified repo
python gh-dork.py -d dorks.txt -o results # Store results in files in the results/ directory, *overwriting any directory contents*
Authentication is done with environment variables. You can authenticate with a Github private access token (
GH_TOKEN), or username and password (
GH_PASS). If you have two-factor authentication enabled, you will be prompted for a two-factor code.
You can also pass a Github Enterprise base URL (
GH_URL) to search against that Github instance; if omitted, this will run against github.com.
