The fastest dork scanner written in Go.

There are also various search engines supported by go-dork, including Google, Shodan, Bing, Duck, Yahoo and Ask.


  • Download a prebuilt binary from releases page, unpack and run! or
  • If you have Go 1.15+ compiler installed and configured:
> GO111MODULE=on go get -v -u


Basic Usage

It's fairly simple, go-dork can be run with:

> go-dork -q "inurl:'...'"


> go-dork -h

This will display help for the tool. Here are all the switches it supports.

| Flag | Description | |----------------|------------------------------------------------------| | -q/--query | Search query (required) | | -e/--engine | Provide search engine (default: Google) | | | (options: Google, Shodan, Bing, Duck, Yahoo, Ask) | | -p/--page | Specify number of pages (default: 1) | | -H/--header | Pass custom header to search engine | | -x/--proxy | Use proxy to surfing | | -s/--silent | Silent mode, prints only results in output |


> go-dork -q "inurl:..."

Queries can also be input with stdin

> cat dorks.txt | go-dork -p 5

Defining engine

Search engine can be changed from the available engines: Google, Shodan, Bing, Duck, Yahoo, Ask. However, if the

flag is not defined, it will use the Google search engine by default.
> go-dork -e bing -q ".php?id="

This will do a search by the Bing engine.


By default, go-dork scrapes the first page, you can customize using the

> go-dork -q "intext:'jira'" -p 5

It will search sequentially from pages 1 to 5.

Adding custom headers

Maybe you want to use a search filter on the Shodan engine, you can use custom headers to add cookies or other header parts.

> go-dork -q "org:'Target' http.favicon.hash:116323821" \
  --engine shodan -H "Cookie: ..." -H "User-Agent: ..."

Using proxy

Using a proxy, this can also be useful if Google or other engines meet Captcha.

> go-dork -q "intitle:'BigIP'" -p 2 -x

Chained with other tools

If you want to chain the

results with another tool, use the
> cat dorks.txt | go-dork | pwntools
> go-dork -q "inurl:'/secure' intext:'jira' site:org" -s | nuclei -t workflows/jira-exploitaiton-workflow.yaml
