Google:Two Million PCs Infected by Search Hijacking Malware
There has been an alarming increase in scareware over the last couple of years. Google, which in 2010 ascertained 15% of all malware to be of the scareware variety, has begun notifying search users about a new strain of malware, which is thought to have been delivered to around a couple million PCs hidden inside fake antivirus software. According to the company, the said malware “causes infected computers to send traffic to Google through a small number of intermediary servers called ‘proxies’”.
