Watch out for false search engine results

April 18th, 2009

Security web sites are reporting a new type of virus attack that tricks Internet search engines into falsely promoting malicious web sites to the top of the results list for some searches. If a user then visits one of the malicious sites, they are prompted to download and install the MS AntiSpyware 2009 Rogue Security Software, which is actually malware.

Please do NOT respond to any web-based attempts to get you to install anti-spyware software. As long as you have an up-to-date version of McAfee VirusScan+AntiSpyware on your computer, you are well protected.
