The hacking group Cult of the Dead Cow (CDC) released a tool that turns Google into an automated vulnerability scanner, scouring websites for sensitive information such as passwords or server vulnerabilities.

CDC first achieved notoriety ten years ago with its backdoor Back Orifice, which demonstrated in a highly public way just how easy it was to take unauthorized control of a Windows PC.

That has been around for quite awhile although I've never seen a tool to automate it. Its quite easy to get where you aren't supposed to be using the right search terms in Google.
