Dangerous searches - June 23, 2007
The overall state of play is that there are still two significant attack waves happening. The ecard guys out of the .hk domains have cleaned up their English and prettied up their email a bit. It's now downloading 2mb of something. We're not sure what it is at this point, but it's probably not friendly, and there are still lots of compromised Italian sites launching MPack/ WebAttacker2.
Here are some of the more interesting (and unexpected) dangerous search terms from the last couple of days...
"Firefox" ... ! Fortunately, that's only dangerous if you're using Internet Explorer to search for it.
"watch movies for free" ... wrong selection gets you a WebAttacker2/ Mpack.
"wallpaper" ... webattacker2/mpack
"blue book" ... is still dangerous. That's been about a week now, which is unusual. Most of these get cleaned up quite quickly.
"stem cell research"... that's a bit mean
"bulgarian mp3 music download" ... that's too easy (JUST KIDDING!)
and "radio blogs" ... wrong choice gets an MDAC.
