Interesting article from SecurityFocus, via TheRegister, on how you or others can use Google to find things that aren't meant to be found. Talks about use of some advanced Google search techniques, and how passwords, budgets, medical records and more can be found (and how they inadvertantly get into Google in the first place). :: I'm j0hnny. I hack stuff.: "Googledorks!
googleDork (gOO g�l'D�rk) noun 1. Slang. An inept or foolish person as revealed by Google"
