You probably heard about the major earthquake in Chile happening last night. So have the malware writers engaged in search engine poisoning. Search Google for "Chile Earthquake" and you will find a number of malware site or sites like "Qooglesearch.com" on the first page. As regular charities start to use these keywords, the poisoned results may be pushed back a bit and show up under other related keywords.

As usual, let us know if you find any odd sites related to this. So far the only thing I am seeing is the fake AV / malware push via search engine poisoning.
