Hackers and attackers start with reconnaissance test(s).
Do a zone transfer test
Let us see if they could succeed to perform a zone transfer: http://hackertarget.com/zone-transfer/
I have got: no results found  ;D ; (1 server found)
;; global options: +cmd
; Transfer failed.

Do the test.
What is my referer? here: http://www.whatismyreferer.com/
My outcome: No referer / Hidden    You're one step further on your way to anonymity on the internet!
And test here: http://darklaunch.com/tools/test-referer
Link with rel="noreferrer" -> no referrer was sent!
Link -> no referrer was sent!
Form via POST and GET was sent.
Also configure per site with RefControl see: http://www.stardrifter.org/refcontrol/

Here they also say I have no referer (header response) http://www.zeigen.com/refer/

enjoy,

About the security implications of the above tests: https://isc.sans.edu/forums/diary/When+does+your+browser+send+a+Referer+header+or+not+/16433

Mind you that firefox has a different referer policy opposed to Google Chrome.
