cDc's Goolag googles for vulnerabilities

LUBBOCK, TX, February 20th - CULT OF THE DEAD COW (cDc), a hacker group,announced the release of Goolag Scanner, a web auditing tool. 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 Johnny I Hack Stuff.
Goolag is open source and comes as a standalone application with GUI. You can read the specifications here
"It's no big secret that the Web is the platform," said cDc spokesmodel Oxblood Ruffin. "And this platform pretty much sucks from a security perspective. Goolag Scanner provides one more tool for web site owners to patch up their online properties. We've seen some pretty scary holes through random tests with the scanner in North America, Europe, and the Middle East.
If I were a government, a large corporation, or anyone with a large web site, I'd be downloading this beast and aiming it at my site yesterday. The vulnerabilities are that serious."
