Google Groups continues to be inundated with malware-pushing porn

A simple search of Google Groups using the search term “porn” shows just an extraordinary number of these sites (you can try it if you like, but realize the risk).

For example, here is a search looking for posts with the keywords “porn video” in the last month, showing 256,000 hits (warning: graphic content):

A spot-check shows that the vast majority of these are posts pushing malware (fake codecs).

And so on.

This really needs to get cleaned up. There’s a reason why so many of the threats that we see users getting infected with are invariably fake codec related.
