OWASP Inquiries/Google Hacking Project

Jump to: navigation, search

Recently, information has been brought to our attention which allows the current OWASP Board to revisit OWASP’s position on the Google Hacking Inquiry that was undertaken in July of 2010. The OWASP Code of Ethics states that we should not intentionally injure or impugn the professional reputation of colleagues and, upon consideration, we feel that perpetuating the inquiry results would do just that. As such, we feel that it is in the best interests of the OWASP Foundation and all concerned parties to wipe the slate clean by removing the details of the inquiry from our public records at this time. We feel sincerely sorry for any damages that this inquiry may have caused to any of the parties involved.
