Are you familiar with search engine poisoning? This threat occurs when “bad guys” try to get their Web sites to appear as one of the top sites listed on a search engine’s search results. Zulfikar Ramzan, Technical Director here at Symantec, shares in a podcast an overview of this threat, explains the motives and gives tips on how you can protect yourself. You can listen to the podcast at http://www.symantec.com/podcasts/detail.jsp?podid=.... ">http://www.symantec.com/podcasts/detail.jsp?podid=sr_search_engine_poisoning.
