Dorking

There’s a good article on Google Dorking on DarkReading here. If you’re not sure what Google Dorking is, in essence, it’s using Google (you can do the same with other search engines) with advanced operators to find information on the Internet that shouldn’t be exposed. You can find files, passwords, user accounts, open webcams and all sort of other data. The concept was made popular by Johnny Long, who now resides in Uganda with his family helping educate needy kids (Hackers For Charity is his organization and and a worthy place to donate funds, equipment or time). http://www.hackersforcharity.org/
