For some time, attackers have leveraged Search Engine Optimization (SEO) techniques in order to promote malicious web content targeting end users. Google has researched this phenomenon and recently announced that fake antivirus pages now represent 60% of the malware associated with popular search terms and these attacks continue to grow in prevalence. The Zscaler Research Team has also shown that some popular search terms from Google Trends, have malicious links to fake antivirus pages in up to 90% of all links within the first 100 results returned. Attackers have even managed to display malicious links as the first result for popular searches.
Moreover, we have found that more than 50% of popular searches contain at least one malicious spam SEO link in the first 10 pages. Is Google doing enough to protect its users? In this talk, we'll debate that question.
Julien Sobrier, from Zscaler, will talk about Blackhat spam SEO on Thursday 09/02 and address the following:
• What is Blackhat spam SEO?
• How do attackers leverage spam SEO?
• How prevalent are spam SEO attacks?
• What different types of attacks are involved?
• What can search engines do to better protect end users?
• How can end users protect themselves?

Video tutorial showing how to become anonymous, hide you internet traffic and identity, and browse the web freely without any fear of privacy invasion or any security concerns from your Government, school, or organization (NSA, CIA, FBI). Going off the grid and becoming fully anonymous (hiding your online identity) is not 100% possible, because of how the internet works, but we can do everything we possibly can to get as close as possible to anonymous. In this video guide, I will show you how to secure all of your devices–such as computers, phones (iPhone vs Android), tablets, and anything else, by securing your passwords, using two factor authentication, securing your web browsers (Mozilla Firefox & Tor), using a VPN (NordVPN or AirVPN), securing social media (Facebook, Snapchat), your communication like texting and email (Signal and Protonmail encrypted messengers), your operating system (Linux), and much much more! I will also cover deleting a majority of your online identity/fingerprint to hide as much information about you as possible, in addition to give you tips on how to prevent social engineering attacks.

Now, some of you may ask why? Well, at a basic level, your privacy is constantly invaded by the websites you visit, your ISP, your government, your school/employer, and even services you use like Google or Facebook. Everything you do is being tracked and we aren't quite sure what consequences may result out of all of this data being created out of us. Some people also fear certain things like doxing, and other forms of leaks of your personal information. It is also common for corporations to sell your data for a profit, which is a complete violation of your privacy.
