HACKING SITES THrough robots.txt files
this is a finding from me when googling. It is known that goole keeps track of all website pages visited by anybody. Then a text file called robots.txt was invented which is used to direct google on the pages of a particular websites it should not track. Sometimes, those pages are pages which contain special pages known only to the admin of the site. They are pages which also gives u a necessary information about the site. Therefore, if u find the robots.txt file of any site. U can get juicy info from it. Here is how to find vulnerable sites. just go to google search and type
inurl:robots.txt. I hope i have helped. Comments are welcomed

I don't think you can do anything with the robots.txt

RE: HACKING SITES THrough robots.txt files
Every website has robots.txt if they don't, then its bad. But in theory yes, you could get juicy info from it =)

Technically, if admin is using web ftp and is too lazy to put on password, then robots.txt would give you admin access. In all other cases it's just files' list.

RE: HACKING SITES THrough robots.txt files
it may help in giving some info about website but it's not so helping. Every site contains robots.txt and it's open.

RE: HACKING SITES THrough robots.txt files
You can do a lot of thing with robots.txt, Discover hidden directories, admin panel, search for vulnerable plugins if any are installed on the server, and if the server has a symbolic link to the directories you can view files and folders through your web browser to hidden DIR's just like a shell. Robots.txt is very useful for those who think nothing can be done with it.

RE: HACKING SITES THrough robots.txt files
Web site owners use the /robots.txt file to give instructions about their site to web robots; this is called The Robots Exclusion Protocol.

It works likes this: a robot wants to vists a Web site URL, say http://www.example.com/welcome.html. Before it does so, it firsts checks for http://www.example.com/robots.txt, and finds:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /

The "User-agent: *" means this section applies to all robots. The "Disallow: /" tells the robot that it should not visit any pages on the site.

Please go through this site and find something to use : http://www.robotstxt.org/robotstxt.html
