Who didn’t see this one coming? No really, it was only a matter of time before people started up scareware sites to get people buying products that will “allegedly” protect them against Chrome OS’ security threats. Give me a break.
It’s a sad reality and yet another reason why I have such disdain for what a great security industry has drug along with it. Some of the coolest people I know working in IT security. Sadly though, this kind of thing does inadvertently reflect badly on the whole lot of them.
The unfortunately reality is that SEO is just not perfect. Even today, it is not all that difficult to game it to a degree, as it would seem some malicious types have figured out. The techniques likely used, is called black hat SEO. And sadly, it is not showing signs of dying off anytime soon.
