"According to a blog post by Cisco-owned Talos, the Zeus Panda malware essentially â€śpoisonsâ€ť Google search results to push fake bank-related results to the top of a key word search. Then, the unwary user, looking for quick answers to a search related to their bank, is fooled into clicking on malicious links.
The malware utilizes search engine optimization (SEO) â€śto make their malicious links more prevalent in the search resultsâ€¦[which] will enable the attacker to quickly obtain credentials, banking and credit card information,â€ť Talos said."
"The ultimate goal is to trick you into going to the hacked site, then redirecting you until you reach a site offering a Microsoft Word document for download, according to Talos."
