    LizaMoon infection: a blow-by-blow account

    LizaMoon infection: a blow-by-blow account

    A nasty piece of malware known as LizaMoon has hijacked links on millions of websites in the past weeks, including some normally safe iTunes and Google links.

    Fortunately, LizaMoon is easy to avoid if you know what to look for.

    Using rogue-AV scare tactics, LizaMoon tries to trick you into running bogus security-scan and virus-cleanup tools on your PC — but it's pure malware.
