Google (Code Search).. New service, yet new problem!

30 Nov

Last month Google launched a new searching feature named (Code Search) which gives Google users the ability to search public source code of the indexed web pages!

It is a great tool for programmers and code developers indeed; however, it is also a great tool for the hackers!!
From now on, if you keep your configuration script files, for instance, publicly available… expect that your passwords will be compromised really quick!
