"Google’s free code-hosting Web site for developers is being used to distribute malware, a security researcher said on Friday. Google Code is a place where programmers can host projects and code.

Along with the legitimate code are links to fake videos that direct users to download a missing codec, said Dave Marcus, director of security research for McAfee Avert Labs. The codecs turn out instead to be password-stealing Trojan horses and programs geared toward stealing financial information for identity fraud, he said.
