    Our dear journos and bloggers need to get the page-hits.

    The page I linked to doesn't contain the words "massive" or "outbreak". From our side, we should exercise a little diligence.

    It would be nice if they did this for more than a single variant. Imagine if google searching could reveal known-malware that uses proxy settings etc?

    What a brilliant idea, now new malware will come out that modifies the Google results page to look exactly like that warning page to try make people buy more fake AV. *sigh*

    Google, malware "outbreaks" happen all the time, let the experts that actually take down botnets deal with it.

    Good luck massive malware outbreak - have a nice day. Try getting past Sandboxie.

    Until that day arrives, enjoy yourselves.
