Google Code Search

On Friday, NetworkWorld talked about Google's new "Code Search" tool:

"The company's new source-code search engine, unveiled Thursday as a tool to help simplify life for developers, can also be misused to search for software bugs, password information and even proprietary code that shouldn't have been posted to the Internet, security experts said Friday."

The best (or worst) part of this is that Google Code Search can also be used to harvest email addresses.

Uh oh.
