Indexme service leaks your sites

Table of Contents

I use the service, helps to index sites in Yandex. It became interesting how it works, went to the source code, and there - palava! Service leaks the links that you sent to indexing. It started with the fact that I was a little confused by the code of the form, thanks to this and began to “dig”.


Looking further. There is one curious script plugged into the footer.

<script src=assets/formoid/formoid.min.js></script>

At the beginning, you can see how the script accesses the domain where the authorization window hangs.


One query for “formoid” on Google easily finds an interesting service: Formoid - Beautiful CSS Form Generator. With its help you can create forms and collect data from them.

Indexer - Indexer of sites in Yandex. You open the service in Yandex.Browser, insert the list of pages to run, click “Let’s go” and leave the computer. I do not minimize the browser, leaving the focus on the window, maybe that’s why this way of running in the index works. Service is completely free, it doesn’t steal data. It still needs to be improved - you can’t customize the delay, now it’s 15 seconds.

Keep your data safe

Dude is smart, he probably got a lot of interesting sites to analyze. But he could have done a better job of hiding the sending of urls. Too bad webmasters leak sites and aren’t even aware of it. Eh.
