The title is Very misleading.

It's actually what is known as Search Engine Poisoning.

The link I posted actually goes to a thread in the Security Warnings sub-forum at the Spywareinfo Forums (Home of the Boot Camp) which is updated on a regular basis. The newest updates will be found on the end of the thread.

They are using the google logo. They know that some people are going to click the modified google logo, and so they use that information to poison the search results.

Using a well known brand name to intice is nothing new. The only thing we can do is be vigilant. "Once bitten, twice shy" fits the bill.
