Be Careful Of The Ondoy Computer Virus

Amidst times of calamity and recovery among Filipinos, some are still taking this opportunity to launch malicious attacks through the internet.

Because of the severity and popularity of the issue, some are using the Ondoy (international name Ketsana) typhoon updates and relief as a way to direct Google searches to their harmful sites instead of useful ones like PhilippineAid.com

Thanks to ronaldredito.org for pointing this out and carefully illustrating the situation.

Because of this, it would be better to check big organizations' websites directly and avoid Google searches for the mean time. You can check media outlets like ABS-CBN or GMA7.

This also happened to me while I was browsing an Ondoy-related issue. I was suddenly directed to an online video-rental website, so everyone please be careful.
