While you're there, take a look at Kamkar's main page. Watch as a list of sites that you've visited recently scrolls down the lower-right corner.

Back to Samy Kamkar. Does the name sound familiar? It should. On Oct. 4, 2005, Kamkar released the XSS Worm on MySpace, infecting more than a million people in a little under 20 hours.

Last month he gave a talk at the Black Hat Conference called "How I met your girlfriend" that showed how to use Google Street View to stalk people.
