WikiSeek is a search engine that has indexed only Wikipedia sites, plus sites that are linked to from Wikipedia. It serves two purposes. First, it is a much better Wikipedia search engine than the one on Wikipedia (and has been built with Wikipedia’s assistance and permission). Second, the fact that it also indexes sites that are linked to from Wikipedia means that, presumably, it will return only very high quality results and very little spam. It won’t show every relevant result to a query, but it will certainly give a good overview of a subject without all the mess.

IE 7 vulnerability discovered

According to security firm Secunia, the just-released Internet Explorer 7 contains a “Redirection Information Disclosure” vulnerability,
which allows one site to fetch data from another site through the
browser, which opens it up to all kinds of cross-site scripting (XSS)
attacks. Interestingly, the same vulnerability has been known and unpatched in IE6
since April. It’s one thing not to patch an old browser, but seems
quite another to release a brand new browser with the same
vulnerability that you’ve been aware of for six months

Google code Search

Google released Code Search today. It is billed as the single location programmers can search for accessible code. Google Code Search
can be searched using precise regular expressions, or restricted
searches for particular languages or filenames can be performed.
Google’s code searcher crawls and indexes the web for .tar.gz,
.tar.bz2, .tar, and .zip files. The idea for the code search came about
from Google’s internal code base
search tool that was getting a lot of successful usage. The results
from searches seem a little messy, and quite ugly, which might be a
deterrent for some users, but could potentially be quite a useful tool
for providing more insight into, and solving coding issues quicker.
