Picking Up Sensitive Information On Google
As reported by CNET, and about a million other websites, credit card numbers can be found by searching on Google. I won't go into the process, but plenty of websites explain the process. You can also find Quicken files (entire tax records for a person), and home adresses. I found social security numbers as well. Websites are at fault, not Google, but their ignorance and carelessness at letting such information out means Google should take the lead and find a way to filter them out.
