Abstract:

"When you use Google's "free" services, you pay, big time - with personal information about yourself. Google is making a fortune on what it knows about you...and you may be shocked by just how much Google does know. Googling Security is the first book to reveal how Google's vast information stockpiles could be used against you or your business - and what you can do to protect yourself." "Unlike other books on Google hacking, this book covers information you disclose when using all of Google's top applications, not just what savvy users can retrieve via Google's search results. West Point computer science professor Greg Conti reveals the privacy implications of Gmail, Google Maps, Google Talk, Google Groups, Google Alerts, Google's new mobile applications, and more. Drawing on his own advanced security research, Conti shows how Google's databases can be used by others with bad intent, even if Google succeeds in its pledge of "don't be evil.""--BOOK JACKET.
