cDc releases Goolag hacker

Notorious hacker group, the Cult of the Dead Cow (cDc), has released a web auditing tool, which uses the Google search engine to find vulnerabilities on sites.

The group claims that the Goolag Scanner enables everyone to audit his or her own web site via Google.

The scanner technology is based on "Google hacking," a form of vulnerability research developed by cDc member Johnny I Hack Stuff.

Available a downloadable application, Goolag makes use of 'dorks', or detailed search patterns that show untapped results for web sites previously indexed by Google.
