    I give them credit for being creative with their work. Though I think their folly is relying on an exact search term. "Oscar Winners 2010 Live" isn't exactly the first thing you would think when searching. It should have been just a simple "2010 Oscar Winners", with the link of course at the very top. They'd be SURE to get bites that way.

    I agree, they are creative, they are smarter...They are "CYBER CRIMINALS"...But i guess many people want to see Live telecast on their PC through internet, that's why they choose this kind phrase where everything get covered...."Oscar" "Winners" "Live" "2010"

    Any large event, be it sports, entertainment, political, disaster, etc - hackers take advantage of this using search engine poisoning. The recent Haiti quake would be a good example

    Most welcome, Rich.

    Wikipedia has become an excellent source of generally unbiased information.
