Google tricked into displaying bogus file format.
Cyber-crooks are exploiting the major earthquake that occurred in Chile on Saturday by poisoning search results related to the event in order to push scareware. Security researchers warn that a new technique is being used to erroneously display the file format for malicious links as PDF.
An 8.8 magnitude earthquake struck the coast of Chile on February 27, 2010 at about 03:30 local time, only 115 km away from the country's largest city, Concepción. Buildings collapsed and the infrastructure was badly damaged in several cities in the area, including the country's capital, Santiago.
