I have heard you can use the "searchstring -config and viola". that will show sites that display password.db to the public.

Different search engines, or search parameter engines, use different parameters, so it would be different dependant on what you where doing.

For example, using Google you can search (repeat exactly as shown):
"password.db"

And it'll search for the words "password" and "db" right next to eachother (most search engines filter out special characters).

You should read up on "Google Hacking"; it's quite a popular subject.

One of my favorites is something similar to:
"gizmo" -site:undergroundnews.com -site:ubbdev.com

And it'll search for the term, excluding the sites you specify.

Awhile back, I was looking for an episode of "callforhelptv". I decided to use "exsample site:www.callforhelptv.com". Exsample is the keyword.I read about the "searchstring option online, after doing some additional research, and not finding anything relevant. I decided to post here.

-Thanks again
