PowerMeta - PowerMeta searches for publicly available files hosted on various websites for a particular domain by using specially crafted Google, and Bing searches

  •    PowerShell

PowerMeta searches for publicly available files hosted on various websites for a particular domain by using specially crafted Google, and Bing searches. It then allows for the download of those files from the target domain. After retrieving the files, the metadata associated with them can be analyzed by PowerMeta. Some interesting things commonly found in metadata are usernames, domains, software titles, and computer names. For many organizations it's common to find publicly available files posted on their external websites. Many times these files contain sensitive information that might be of benefit to an attacker like usernames, domains, software titles or computer names. PowerMeta searches both Bing and Google for files on a particular domain using search strings like "site:targetdomain.com filetype:pdf". By default it searches for "pdf, docx, xlsx, doc, xls, pptx, and ppt".
