Subject: Any thoughts on War-Googling?

This technique is not new, and has been used on several ocassions. I have
seen it used - and explained - on a very popular MP3 forum using an apache
specific query to find music indexes, It has also been used to find open
(whether or not intentional) apache::mp3 sites and CDRom servers connected
to the web (Storpoint as far as I remember). I have used it myself in
awareness presentations just to show that the recreational hacker will
probably not bother you if you've covered the basics including blocking
bots - since so many others haven't. Just query for version strings in
popular PHP scripts and you'll see what I mean. Or query something like
http://www.google.nl/search?q=parent+directory+-htm+-html+port+apache+openss
l+0.96+index+server&hl=nl&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&start=70&sa=N and go for the
sites giving full info on what they run.
