Marijuana and Mid-Terms

by Andy on November 2nd, 2010 in Security Alert.

Over Halloween we saw the usual glut of malicious sites hijacking spooky search engine results. Today looks to bring some more search engine result hijacking opportunities for the bad guys.


The decsion on whether to legalize marijuana in California and the US mid-term elections are today's hot topics and guess what? Yes, malware lurks at the end of some links for the politically active and the stoned. Some poisoned links can be found at the end of these search queries resulting rogue anti-malware installations:


Types Of Marijuana
Marijuana Legalization
California Prop 19
California Prop 19 Poll
Prop 19 Video
Legalize Marijuana Ohio
Obama Legalize Marijuana
Nj Marijuana Legalization
Federal Marijuana Laws
Medical Marijuana Texas

Prop 19 Tv Ad


I understand that your reactions may be impaired if you're the kind of person that obsesses on this subject, so be extra careful when clicking on weed related links today.
