DarkFiber Consulting is aware of public reports regarding a search engine result poisoning campaign affecting search results for the Montgomery County Animal Shelter. Users seeking details on rumors about the closure of a “Montgomery County Animal Shelter” may be led to click on illegitimate search results which attempt to download malicious code. The rumors are being spread via e-mail, forums, and social networking sites, usually taking the form of a plea for readers to contact the shelter and adopt animals prior to the shelter’s closing.

DarkFiber Consulting is monitoring the situation and will provide updates as they become available.
