Google Sponsored Links Spreading Rogue Anti-Virus

From Websense

In the Labs, we keep a close eye on millions of Web sites each week. Last week, our ThreatSeeker network became aware of a download site offering the compression utility Winrar—one of the most popular and best-known compression utilities—bound with malware. We thought that this scam could present a good case study to show how the reputations of legitimate and popular applications and online services are being abused to serve and help malware authors to spread malicious software.
