Hopefully, this malicious website will be shutdown by authorities soon

Dangerous website -- Please don't mispell Google
http://www.f-secure.com/v-descs/googkle.shtml

F-Secure staff has found a malicious website that utilizes a spelling error when typing the name of the popular search engine - 'Google.com'. If a user opens a malicious website, his/her computer gets hijacked - a lot of different malware gets automatically downloaded and installed: trojan droppers, trojan downloaders, backdoors, a proxy trojan and a spying trojan. Also a few adware-related files are installed.

The name of the malicious website is 'Googkle.com'. [bPLEASE DO NOT GO TO THIS WEBSITE![/b] Otherwise your computer will get infected! We have reported the case to the authorities.
