Meet the Search Engine Security Developer

Why was Search Engine Security created?

I have written extensively about Blackhat spam SEO and fake antivirus pages at http://research.zscaler.com/. There is no great solution to fight spam SEO. This add-on use a simple trick to keep users from being redirected to a malicious page: the Referer header is changed to hide the fact that the user comes from search engine. very simple, but very effective. This trick is explained at http://research.zscaler.com/2010/06/tricks-to-easily-detect-malware-and.html
