Dont Type Googkle

Unread postby Bertha » April 29th, 2005, 7:19 am


Just a warning from the Antivirus company BullGuard:

Security researchers have discovered an attack aimed at would-be visitors to Google.com who simply mistype the search giant's Web address, ZDNet reports. http://news.zdnet.com/2100-1009_22-5686764.html

According to security company F-Secure, unsuspecting Web surfers may be bombarded with various types of Trojan horse threats, spyware and backdoors when they go to "Googkle.com." The scheme is meant to take advantage of sloppy or hurried typists, given that on most keyboards the letter "k" key sits next to the "l" needed to type "Google."

In an advisory, F-Secure strongly advises people not to go to Googkle.com.

People who do so will see two pop-ups linked to Web sites that install the Trojan programs. One of the programs is a phishing-style Trojan that attempts to garner individuals' online banking information, while another drops phony antivirus alerts on the victim's desktop that attempt to lure people to other infected Web sites.
