Be Careful When You GOOGLE
Everybody, and I mean EVERYBODY, knows Google. Google is perhaps the most well-loved search engine in the world. And with the advent of those oh-so-many goodies like: AdSense, iGoogle, Google Reader, GCal, GMail and Google Pages, one cannot help but be one of the vistors that frequent the website by the second. Google has revolutionized the Internet, making it possible to have a paperless office. In the end, Google has become an everyday habit.

But as the title goes, I repeat, "Be careful when you Google." I gathered some valuable information a serious of mistyping "Google.com". Nobody is perfect, and everybody makes typos. Even when typing the famous search engine on your address bar. To be very specific, please watch carefully when you type "Google.com," because if you happen to type "Googkle.com" (PLEASE DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!!), you are unleashing a serious vicious problem into your computer. I do not know this by experience, and I am seriously not that dumb to try it. But hey, if you are the regular dare devil, then by all means, be my guest.

Unconvinced? Here is an excerpt of the findings of F-Secure about the said website:

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'. PLEASE DO NOT GO TO THIS WEBSITE! Otherwise your computer will get infected! We have reported the case to the authorities.

I am trying to spread the word because I, for one, mistype Google.com all the time. And I know there are lots of people out there who do the same. So please, be very careful.

Sincerely,

About Me: even when she has fairy wings on, this girl is anything BUT dainty. perhaps the size, the weight, and the personality alone are just too much for her to be considered delicate, prim, proper, and refined. this girl with the mud smudged cheeks has been down on the ground one to many times. these times forced her to be tougher, smarter, and more savvy than she has ever been. perhaps she will always be, never dainty. email me: neverdainty [at] gmail [dot] com
