Trojans, again

And once again this is a trojan. The user must locate, download, and install the software in the first place, right? I just Googled 'Celas Trade Pro'. The fourth hit was a Securelist page about AppleJesus. The third was an ITWire page about the Lazarus group and bank hacking, and the first two were links to Celas LLC. The first 10 hits on DuckDuckGo were to news stories about how Celas Trade Pro was a trojan. Over at Bing, the first hit (an ad) was for E*Trade, but the rest of the first 10 hits were quite similar to the results from DuckDuckGo. At Yahoo, the first two hits were ads (E*Trade and Amazon, apparently you can get anything at Amazon, according to Yahoo) but the rest of the top ten were similar to DuckDuckGo and Bing. It seems that it might be a good idea to avoid Google and Yahoo, but most commentards already know that.
