Typo’d Google domains in Top 10 malware exploit sites

Posted in Web by whuup on June 5, 2009

typogoogle1Misspelled versions of two popular Google services are among the Top 10 sites hosting exploits for use in drive-by malware download attacks. Of these domains more than 1,400 were hosted in the China’s .cn top level domain.  Several contained plays on the name of Google such as goooogleadsence.biz and googleanalystics.net. Some sources say ten of thousands of hijacked sites that are referring to Google (or third party websites) are  launching attacks via the browser.

So, think twice before visiting a website which you typed (or clicked!) that is from Google. Maybe you shouldn’t visit Google anymore.
