What do puppies, furniture, and Viagra have in common?

Filed Under: SophosLabs

We don't have a clue either, but while digging through a list of compromised sites I found something rather amusing. For some time now, we've been seeing a number of sites that have been compromised with dozens of links linking some medical product keywords (Viagra, Cialis, etc...), presumably for SEO poisoning where they attempt to boost their sites Google ranking. Now though, instead of trying to boost words such as "buy viagra cialis cheap", we're seeing a softer, cuddlier side of them.

The first day we went to this site the only thing we saw was an appended list of meds. The next day we were investigating the same site again only to find some newly added code mentioning puppies. Sure enough, the next day yet again a new list was added, this time pushing various wood based furnitures. I suppose they aren't picky about the product they're pushing, they're just in it for the money.

I wonder if they even have any sort of success with the more obscure products? In any case, it will be interesting to see what new products they have in store for us tomorrow. Oh, and if you do have any clever answers to the question asked in the subject, feel free to send us a Tweet!
