National Security Agency releases book about hacking Google
 

The National Security Agency has released a book entitled "Untangling the Web: A Guide to Internet Research." One chapter is even titled "Google Hacking."

The National Security Agency has released a book entitled "Untangling the Web: A Guide to Internet Research." As expected, the book is nothing short of ordinary. It's no mystery novel, or the secret agent-themed books we've seen flying around. Instead, the book, which is now available in .pdf, details how to uncover intelligence hiding on the web. And yes, when we say web, we're talking about Google.

The book, all 643 pages of it, talks about strategies in using search engines, as well as other online tools. There's even a chapter called "Google Hacking." Apparently the book was released after the site MuckRock made a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request last month. The book is written by Robyn Winder and Charlie Speight. The NSA, however, said that the opinions expressed in the book are the authors’s, and not the agency’s.
