CanaryPW: Search Engine for Publicly Pasted Text


Tue, Jul 16th, 2013 21:00 by capnasty NEWS

The beta release of CanaryPW, a search engine that lets you "look through text that has been publicly posted on services like Pastebin." The announcement explains how it all works.

A series of tools scan the text, pull out the interesting bits, and then are entered into a database. The interesting bits for now include e-mail addresses, phone numbers, IP addresses, and websites.

The idea behind this is to mirror the data posted on these sites so anyone can perform quick analysis. It also allows for individuals and organisations to determine if any proprietary information has been inadvertently made available and allow for mitigation.
