I've reported a couple of times on how easy it is for `power' Google users to search for supposedly secure information using the right commands.
Well now it seems you can use Google search for credit and debit card numbers - if you use the right syntax.
Surfing the Net at the weekend, I was amazed to see a report from Bennett Haselton, a Slashdot contributor, on how it's done.
You can read Bennett's report here and I have to say I've tried some of his techniques, with astounding results.
The good news (from a security perspective) is that Google seems to have blocked simple searches for sequences of Visa and MasterCard numbers - but it's still possible to Google for company passwords.
"Card number searches on google" also works, but I shouldn't really have told you that, should I?...
