This book helps people find sensitive information on the Web.

Google is one of the 5 most popular sites on the internet with more than 380 million unique users per month (Nielsen/NetRatings 8/05). But, Google's search capabilities are so powerful, they sometimes discover content that no one ever intended to be publicly available on the Web including: social security numbers, credit card numbers, trade secrets, and federally classified documents.Google Hacking for Penetration Testers Volume 2shows the art of manipulating Google used by security professionals and system administrators to find this sensitive information and "self-police" their own organizations.
