The Microsoft Safety and Security Center has become a hot bed of porn redirects, and sleazy porn sites invariably lead to malware. And there’s an interesting twist to how this occurred. Search poisoning, on its own, is no big deal. But in this case, something else is going on. Since we’re a (sort of) PG 13 blog, I’ll give a mundane example: A person goes to the Microsoft Safety and Security center and types in “girl” in search box. The search results have been poisoned. Even an innocous search such as this one returns nasty results. (Searching for porn terms will yield some very nasty results. Most of the stuff is far too disturbing to post on this blog.)
