Holiday shoppers searching for free greeting cards to print might discover that the rogue security software distributors have already begun using search engine optimization poisoning for terms with seasonal themes:
To avoid poisoned links in a search engine you should beware of:
— sites that appear a number of times in the list of search engine hits, all showing the same phrases
— URLs that are made up of random alpha numerical characters and meaningless. An example would be: /2LitmlZM/
The “free cards to print” hits re-direct to the FakeVimes Online Scanner Scam. Here they use a threat name “Troajn.awF” that was an actual threat at one time, although they misspelled it.
