and you get a ton of websites hosting browser exploits being used to infect
computers. setup.exe and a bunch of other crapola. Some of them seemed
pretty clever. Nothing new just figured I'd pass on the search info in case
anyone was researching these.
I didn't look real hard or at many of the search result pages, but I
didn't see any exploits involved in this -- just your typical "use JS
to (quite realistically) fake an online scan of the machine then push
an installer .EXE" bogus anti-[adware|malware|spyware|virus] sites.
