Tiger Woods Affair Increases Hackers Success in Malware Attack

Hackers have continued the routine of using current event and high profile news stories to continue Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to spread Malware.

Users searching keywords related to Tiger Woods will discover several sites hosting “videos” and "Pictures" that will offer details about the accident, Rachel Uchitel and Tiger’s relationship.

The videos, as expected for anyone following the malicious SEO trends, will only “work” if you download and install a “required plugin”. This plugin is a Trojan, and according to it is used to send Spam from infected systems.
