Is the cloud a hacker's paradise? A survey at last month's Defcon hacking conference paints that picture. Sponsored by security vendor Fortify Software , the survey asked 100 hackers who attended Defcon about security in the cloud. A sizable 96 percent said they believe the cloud opens up more hacking opportunities, while 89 percent said cloud vendors aren't doing enough to address cybersecurity issues. Among the hackers surveyed, 45 percent said they had already tried to exploit vulnerabilities in the cloud.
I have felt a need for this kind of software since a long time, and finally found it today.

Google has become the de facto standard in the search arena. It's easy, quick and powerful. For those same reasons that the general user has gravitated to Google, so have the hackers. And as we all know, if the hackers use, the security professionals need to utilize it as well. And it doesn't hurt to have Johnny Long (with help from Ed Skoudis) showing you the ropes.
