Google to find Passwords
Thursday, September 07, 2006
Some people are habituated to keep their passwords in a plain text log file. They don't even bother to encrypt that file. They might not have thouight how much dangerous is it to do such a stupid task. The consequence is that - Some n00b can just access that using Google.

Use following keyword with Google and you will understand. I am in Love with Google really.

filetype:log inurl:"password.log"

Here filetype : determines the type of file extension you want to search.
         inurl : is used to look if the name is present in the url address.

Be aware of storing password in text files.

Enjoy Gooooooooooooooogling.
