Google indexes executables...
Revelation of the month: Google indexes executables!!. This news was met with a mixed reception from the computer security world - some commenting that this is a security risk, but also comments on how useful a feature this potentially can be.
Personally, I was quite excited to see the news, although rather surprised. While writing my Master thesis, I used the Google API heavily for searching and retrieving documents for use within university courses. After my heavy use of the Google API, I was naturally quite surprised to find out about this "Binary Indexing" method as this is something I never found while using the API.
This is a certainly a step forward in the fight and we look forward to seeing where it leads us....
