The Google Hacking Database: A Key Resource to Exposing Vulnerabilities

We all know the power of Google—or do we? Two types of people use Google: normal users like you and me, and the not-so-normal users—the hackers.

As  a security tester, Kiran Karnad uses the GHDB (Google Hacking Database) to ensure their product will not be the next target for hackers.
