Yesterday we posted a diary about the official release of Microsoft's new Security Essentials product. Today we got a tip about a Websense blog entry alerting folks that they are already seeing Search Engine Optimization (SEO) poisoning attacks that have resulted in malicious URLs being included in the list of results when people search for "Microsoft Security Essentials".
While there *might* be some other sites that are offering up legitimate copies of the valid installation files, you really should go directly to Microsoft's Security Essentials site to download the installation files to be sure you are getting the expected software.
