Does ExploitSearch track my queries?

YES and NO

While some data is recorded about each query/search, it is only used to identify malicious activity and to idfentify sites linking to ExploitSearch.net.

If an IP address (and query) are identified as malicious, the IP address is added to the "Naughty List".

If it is not determined to be malicious, it is purged from the database.

In either case the referer is kept for SEO purposes.

NOTE: All of the data being collected and deleted is available from the web server logs: this should not really surprise anyone
  • date of query/search
  • source IP address
  • HTTP User Agent
  • the referer (if any)
  • query (search string)
