The inquiry into the Google Hacking project and associated allegations has been completed by the Board with help from the Global Projects Committee. Fortunately, we have had very little need for inquiries of this nature over the years. Still, the inquiry process is in place to help preserve and protect the openness of our community.
 
  
The inquiry concluded that while the Google Hacking project was not the most innovative or open project, there was no abuse of the OWASP Brand. However, the abusive behavior demonstrated around this project and the subsequent inquiry were destructive and intolerable. Therefore, the Board has resolved to suspend Christian from OWASP Leadership for a period of six months. We encourage and welcome positive participation by Christian in OWASP projects and chapters as a normal member of the OWASP community so long as that participation is consistent with our culture and principles of conduct.

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.
