SEO poisoning attacks growing

SEO Poisoning Attacks 

"Online fraudsters have continued to expand their efforts this week to inject iframe attacks into the optimized search results of major Web sites.

The attack abuses a common practice among Web sites -- caching search queries -- an activity designed to boost their rankings among major search engines, such as Google, according to security researcher Dancho Danchev. The attackers inject common search terms and an iframe script designed to send victims to other sites hosting malicious code. The search term and iframe redirect get cached in search engines such as Google."
