Is it possible to get a list of files under a directory of a website? How?
If you have directory listing disabled in your webserver, then the only way somebody will find it is by guessing or by finding a link to it.
That said, I've seen hacking scripts attempt to "guess" a whole bunch of these common names. "secret.html" would probably be in such a guess list.
The more reasonable solution is to restrict access using a username/password via a htaccess file (for apache) or the equivalent setting for whatever webserver you're using.
There are only two ways to find a web page: through a link or by listing the directory.
Usually, web servers disable directory listing, so if there is really no link to the page, then it cannot be found.
BUT: information about the page may get out in ways you don't expect. For example, if a user with Google Toolbar visits your page, then Google may know about the page, and it can appear in its index. That will be a link to your page.
Yes, you can, but you need a few tools first. You need to know a little about basic coding, FTP clients, port scanners and brute force tools, if it has a
If not just try tgp.linkurl.htm or html, ie
wap /index/ default /includes/ main/ files/ images/ pics/ vids/, could be possible file locations on the server, so try all of them so
default.html. You'll hit a file after a few tries then work off that. Yahoo has a site file viewer too: you can try to scan sites file indexes.
Alternatively, try brutus aet, trin00, trinity.x, or whiteshark airtool to crack the site's FTP login (but it's illegal and I do not condone that).
