    On his page under one of the entries in Vkontakte, a comment from Yandex was published with the following content

    Yandex indexes the entire open part of the Internet - those pages that are accessible when clicking on links without entering a login and password. Yandex does not index pages that are indexed by the site administrator in a robots.txt file, even if they are located in the public part of the Internet.

    Our security service is now contacting colleagues from Google to draw their attention to the fact that these files may contain private information.
