We are looking for a tool that can be configured to crawl for string patterns (ie. SSNs, credit card numbers, etc).  Cornell's Spider 2008 beta has this capability, but every time we used it, it crashed on us.  

We also found a program called webshag, but it would only look for pre-defined stuff like email addresses or external links.

Did some googling, but haven't really found anything.  Thoughts?
