Risk while using Image Search - QuickHeal Article

Postby sunewbie on Thu Feb 14, 2013 5:30 am

Hello,

I use Quick Heal Internet Security on my office XP machines. Recently I got a notification about 'Malware Alert! The risk of image searches on Google and Bing'

Is it to be taken seriously or is it a marketing strategy.

Any thoughts about it?

Thanks

You should take it seriously because it's none of a marketing strategy, marketing errors wouldn't ever show as notification errors, and i didn't see any marketing error without their aspect, like if it's a for marketing then there must be an alternative place for searching images, where they want you to search.
