SANS Internet Storm Center - Fake AV incarnations making the rounds

More "Fake AV" Incarnations Making The Rounds

In terms of propagation, getting a "hit" from this malware is as easy as entering a series of search terms on your favorite search engine, and unluckily picking a search result that delivers nothing more than the misleading introductory screen and fake anti-virus pop-up alerts (with their associated "D-level" english grammar). Should you unfortunately find yourself victim to this, remember to not click anywhere on the screen, but instead use "Task Manager - Applications" to terminate the victimized web browser session.

I heard that microsoft's regular monthly patches have a solution for the "Antispyware 2008" malware infection.
