Google has eradicated those bogus malware sites from its search results.
As noted by Sunbelt Software on Monday and Tuesday, Google search results were being gamed by hackers. The goal: Get you to visit a malware loaded site.
Late Wednesday, Sunbelt followed up with a few more comments.
- Google nixed the malware sites from its search results;
- The attack was apparently focused at Google;
- And Sunbelt called the attack crafty.
Sunbelt referred to the attack as SEO poisoning. I wonder if that's something we'll see more of in 2008.
