Google ADs pointing to malware

Fake sites for popular software have been seen pushing IcedID malware (also known as Bokbot).

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a technique that websites use to increase their visibility for search engines like Google. Cyber criminals occasionally use SEO to direct search traffic to malicious advertisement links. These ads redirect users to fake software sites based on specific search terms. This technique is referred to as SEO poisoning.
