Urls über den Yahoo Site Explorer aus dem Yahoo-Index löschen – ein Sicherheitsrisiko?

in Yahoo

Neben ein paar anderen kleineren Neuerungen ist es jetzt auch möglich Urls über den Yahoo Site Explorer aus dem Yahoo-Index zu löschen:

Delete URLs: For your authenticated sites, you can now delete any URLs from the index. Simply locate the URL in Site Explorer and click on the ‘Delete URL’ button. The URL and all its subpaths will be deleted shortly thereafter. This is meant to work in conjunction with the robots.txt file while providing greater responsiveness. Please continue to use the robots.txt protocol to ensure that our crawler does not crawl pages you want to keep out of our index.

Dazu Jeremy Luebke:

It is literally a disaster waiting to happen. There is zero verification other than being logged into the proper Yahoo account to delete an entire site from the Yahoo index. [...] If this loop hole is not fixed it’s only a matter of time before webmasters start waking up to entire sites missing from the Yahoo index. Yahoo accounts are too accessible to phishing and hack attempts to be the only barrier for such a powerful tool.

Seine Empfehlung: Keine Domain bei Yahoo Site Explorer authentifizieren und bereits authentifizierte Domains wieder zu löschen. Aus deutscher Sicht kann man das eher gelassen sehen. Viel Traffic bringt Yahoo schließlich nicht.
