A new Google search

So there’s a new tool out from google that lets you search U.S. government sites. That seems fine and all, a one stop place for anything related to the government.

Well, almost. In an article posted on CNN just yesterday (6/14), the government, in a rush to digitize information, has made it a lot easier for identity thieves to get their information.

So let’s review. The government has put all sorts of information online. Some of it may contain sensitive information. Google has crawled through these sites and made it easy to find this information. So now all identity thieves would have to do is deduce some key searches, and they’ve hit the jackpot.
