Panda Labs is reporting the discovery of a new malicious SEO (search engine optimization) campaign that targets the Ford Motor Company. Here’s what happens: “Simple Ford-related terms are linking to a video, a favorite method of infection used by criminals, where an end user is asked to install a codec.
