Transcript: Report: Smart Malware Tricks Google, Making It More Likely You'll Give Up Your Banking Info

Online we’re taught the best safeguard for our banking data is to stay away from sketchy sites.

But one type of malware is so smart, it’s poisoning Google search results.

According to a blog post by Cisco-owned Talos, the Zeus Panda malware is using SEO trickery to push fake bank sites to the top of Google search results, making it more likely a user will click on the wrong site and download a malicious Microsoft word file.

A spokesperson for internet security firm Avast tells Fox News although the method isn’t completely new, “it’s rarely seen as a mechanism of spreading malware such as banking Trojans." So far, the malware seems is targeting customers in Sweden, India, Australia and Saudi Arabia.

But it could always spread to other countries.

According to Fox News, the best way to keep yourself safe is to keep Macros on Microsoft Word disabled, otherwise the file will infect your system.

Bottom line, be mindful of what you click on.
