More... Rogue ads on Bing (and Yahoo)

October 13, 2011 - "... Microsoft needs to get a handle on ad placements on Bing. Ok, so Bing isn't the most widely used search engine, but remember that Yahoo plays a part here as well. In this case, we're talking Sirefef (ZeroAccess aka Max++), probably the nastiest piece of malware circulating on the 'net right now. Sirefef kills any attempt to remove it, and is nearly impossible to clean (short of booting onto a rescue disk and performing cleanup actions, or reformatting). So just search for "adobe flash"... (That same search term will look identical on Yahoo, since Yahoo displays Bing ads and search results.) Which leads to an innocent-looking "download flash" page... the page isn't actually "GetAdobeFlash.com". Instead, it redirects to a directory on a compromised trucking site (arulbrothers .com), downloading a file from torreandaluz (dot) com/flash/Flash Player 10 Setup.exe . So let's download that Flash Player and run it through VirusTotal*..."
