    Massive amounts of malware redirects in searches.

    On the surface, this looks pretty scary.

    http://sunbeltblog.blogspot.com/2007...f-malware.html

    I have been trying to recreate the results but I have not been able to. Can anyone recreate what is shown on this page?

    Cheers:

    Hi,

    I tried but I couldn't find those sites, I guess they must have been cleaned up?

    I wonder if it's google.com versus google.ca or google.co.uk?? Notice they are using .com. When I tried the same search as they did (with safe mode off) I got different results (see jpg)

    As a side note:

    True, but I have an office full of idiots I am forced to deal with on a daily basis.

    .cn? doesn't that stand for "complete nobjockey"?

    Hmmmm, DjM is fishing for a Christmas present or two?

    Something like 2 outers of 00-buck and 5,000 rounds of .50cal depleted uranium rounds.

    Sorry mate, I am not planning on my next batch of Sarin until the New Year

    To much noise Nihil not to mention mess. I am thinking more along the lines of "Special Kool-Aid"

    Here is an update from the SANS Internet Storm Center.

    UPDATE: Google for one has cleaned up their database. They are currently no longer returning these .cn pages for the queries affected.
