Google Warning About a Potential Infection

Posted on Wednesday, July 20th, 2011 by Chuck Curry under Security.

The Google security blog has posted a report about a strain of malware that can redirect your Google search queries.  Upon reaching the Google search page, users infected with this malware will see a message from Google indicating they are infected.  For more information, including a picture of the warning message, please see the original post on the Google security blog:  Using data to protect people from malware.

Based on the information available to ITS, we do not know if the malware in question is detected by Symantec.  Any client seeing the message above should contact 6-TECH (336-256-TECH) and should not take remedial action.
