    Default Footprint for finding phpBB forums

    Hi everyone,

    Have downloaded the automatic phpBB forum profile creator from http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackha...48-forums.html and am wondering what are some good footprints for finding phpBB forums in Google? It comes with 548 phpBB forums, but would like to put more in there.

    Thanks in advance!

    I see what you did there. Thanks - will need a large amount of proxies to scrape this

    Cheers dannyhw,

    This works a treat, although I think I will need to search for a scraper with working proxies so Google doesnt shit their nappies and cry over spilt milk about things...

    Yeah but once you scrape some good proxies it really shouldn't take too long.

    Thanks in advance!
    If you just looking for phpbb forums in general: <keyword> inurl:"viewforum.php?f="

    If your looking for phpbb profile pages: <keyword> inurl:"memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile"

    Registration Pages: <keyword> inurl:"/ucp.php?mode=register"

    Those should get you started. I build my own list by visiting 5-10 phpbb forums (or whatever footprint I'm looking for) and jot down any word or combination of words on the page itself and within the url.

    There are times when the forum is using modwrite to change their URL's so you'll need to resort to searching for onpage text footprints:

    <keyword> "View unanswered posts" + "View active topics"
    <keyword> "Powered by phpBB" + "phpBB Group"
    <keyword> "Board index" + "It is currently"
    <keyword> "The team" + "Log me on automatically each visit"


    I find it best to use two or more on text searches combined to weed out all of the errors. Then take any query above and add all of the TLD's within the search to make sure you get all of the links possible like this:

    site:.gov <keyword> inurl:"memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile"
    site:.edu <keyword> inurl:"memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile"
    site:.com <keyword> inurl:"memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile"

    ....

    "Powered by phpBB" + memberlist.php -"In order to login you must be registered"

    i just did a search on this but putting a negative sign is not removing the page that have non public viewable profile any idea on this
