Gegereka the freaky file search

GegerekaThis from the Freaky-drop-the-remote-and-go-hide-your-files department. An anonymous source sent us Gegereka (which sounds like the name of a Grecian god of FTP server indexing or file nakedness) is a new FTP server search engine and indexer. You can search for .mp3, .wav, .jpg, .gif, .avi, .mpg, .zip, .rar, .gz, .exe, .doc, .txt, .pdf, .xls, .ppt and just about any other type you can think of. I tried both psd and wmv formats, of which it found many (screenshots after the jump). Gegereka looks oddly like Google, but so does everything these days. The scary thing is Gegereka finds files on FTP servers, and the owner of the server may not even have a clue that their files are being scanned. This is a cool idea for a web application, and I like the "search within results" feature as well, but I can see this tool being sorely misused by the RIAA and others like them. Katie, bar the freakin' door.
My search for "mp3", then "britney." I searched by clicking on the .mp3 link at the top of the page. You have to first specify the type of file you want, then the actual search criteria at the bottom of the screen, before you get the results you want.

My search for ".psd" files, which I typed in manually.

My search for ".wmv" files, also manually.
