Google Used To Launch Malware

Google became the victim of a concerted campaign to redirect users to malware sites. The attack started earlier this week with redirects to malware-infected sites from innocuous search queries things like cisco router information.

Details emerged the next day on SearchSecurity and the Sunbelt blog.

Google eventually removed the bad sites from searchs later in the week and solicited assistance from the public in pruning out other malware sites.
