    If you turn to Google to find information on the assassination of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, chances are you will land on a Web site rigged with malicious exploits.
    Within hours of Bhutto's death, researchers at Websense Security Labs discovered several Web sites capitalizing on the breaking news surrounding Bhutto's death, including one that was high on Google's results for the generic "benazir" search query.
    At 11:00 a.m. on Dec. 28, one of the top three results on Google for the "benazir" search query was serving up a JavaScript redirect to a Web site attempting to load a Trojan downloader on Windows machines.
