Seen in the wild: Another rogue Google site


Came across this one doing some spyware testing today (it was popped up from a nasty site). Using basic iframe tags, it looks like Google, and it is Google, but with some slight differences. The sites whole purpose is to contact another site to display an advertisement, which is actually set to be so small that you’ll never see it, but the owner of this fake Google site will still get paid for displaying an ad. Basically, a way to rip off advertisers. Sunbelt BLOG: Seen in the wild: Another rogue Google site
