Google Hacking Malicious Code

Filed under
Google

Security researcher H.D. Moore has released a new malware search engine and its underlying code to help searchers find malware code that Google has indexed.

But Google isn't exactly happy about it.

Moore who co-authored the Metasploit Framework, a platform for testing and developing exploit code, also launched his Month of Browser Bugs (MoBB) project, which is disclosing a new browser vulnerability every day this month.

In addition to publicly posting the new malware search engine, Moore has posted the source code behind the engine in three segments: the Malware Signature Generator; the Malware Google API Signature Search; and the Malware Downloader.

All three have been released under the open source GPL license and have been written in Ruby.

FSFE: ‘German public sector a digital laggard’

With their lacklustre approach to free software, German public services remain behind other European member states, says the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE). When asked, the current governing parties’ say they support free software, but their statements are contradicted by the lack of action, the advocacy group says. In early September, the FSFE published its analysis of the free software policies put forward by the main political parties on the ballot, in preparation for Germany’s parliamentary elections on 24 September. This analysis (in German) is far more detailed than an earlier report generated by the Digital-O-Mat, a web portal set up to focus on political parties’ positions on 12 digital topics.
