  • SiteDigger 2.0

    Foundstone, a subsidiary of McAffe publishes software called SiteDigger. The publishers describes it’s purpose: SiteDigger 2.0 searches Google’s cache to look for vulnerabilities, errors, configuration issues, proprietary information, and interesting security nuggets on web sites.

  • A9 Yellow Pages, teaching an old dog new tricks

    I would be remiss if I didn’t pile on to the hubub about Amazon’s new Yellow Pages search over on the A9 site. John Battelle’s got the scoop on how it was put together. In short, Manber and co. (urged on by Jeff Bezos, who Manber says was "very involved") strapped GPS-enabled digital video camera-cum-terabyte […]
