Google hacking expected to boom in 2005
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 1/14/2005 07:42:00 PM.

CyberTrust is warning that all Internet-connected devices, even Web cams, must be treated as a potential security threat. Security experts are predicting a massive increase this year in so-called "Google hacking", where malicious Internet users or worms use the search engine to discover resources that are not intended for public consumption.

Last year two high profile worms used Google and other search engines to find potential targets. In August, a MyDoom variant used Google to find email addresses and a few months later the Santy worm found vulnerable bulletin board applications using various search engines. Security experts expect to see a lot more this year and advise enterprises to minimise their exposure to such attacks.

Andrew Collins, security manager in Asia/Pacific for CyberTrust, said that enterprises can avoid many of the potential dangers by ensuring that network resources, such as Web cams, are not indexed by search engines.
