On Friday we talked about Adware/Spyware, and we provided a list with a brief explanation of the top variants we are detecting.
Today we are going to see one of those in action. Here is a video that shows how a redirector works. This time it acts against a Google search. When you try to perform a search, for example, something about "Panda", the first link shows our spanish home page www.pandasoftware.es. But, surprise surprise, if you follow that link instead of going there, the link is spoofed and you end elsewhere.
This allows malware creators to redirect traffic to specific sites. But the interesting thing is that the user is not going to be aware of that, as they have used well known tools as Google and followed a link directly from the results page.
Watch the video and enjoy it!
Thanks to Vicen for the information.
