Be careful when searching the web Posted by Jusu @ 08:39 GMT

We have been investigating an interesting case about what happens if you happen to mistype www.google.com. One variation (www. googkle .com) leads to a site that will start a huge chain of webpages with exploits in various formats. HTML, CHM, JS, VBS, EXE, JAR you name it. As an end result the poor mistypist will have seriously malware and spyware infected computer. So keep your browsers up to date and practice on your touch typing.
