Dan Gillmor’s eJournal points to a Security Focus article hosted on the Register with some good tips on avoiding publishing every document on your web server onto Google, like the budget spreadsheet or your password files. Worth reading for anyone running a web server. Sometimes Google Knows Too Much. “Security Focus: The perils of Googling. Google is in many ways most dangerous website on the Internet for thousands of individuals and organisations.

Everyone with a Website should read this soberly written but fairly alarming piece. It shows how much we may be exposing, often inadvertantly, on our websites.”
