Office.Microsoft.Com Search Results Can Lead To Rogue Anti-Virus

Websense Security Labs™ ThreatSeeker™ Network has detected that search results on office.microsoft.com can lead users to a Rogue AV page.

Users looking for information related to help with Office products on Microsoft’s own site are being targeted. Users may be unaware that, when they type in search queries on the site, Microsoft scours its own Web site for results, but also pulls in results from the broader Web. Because the URL for the search results begins with http://office.microsoft.com, this is particularly troubling for users who trust sites simply because of their reputation.
