Beware of fake links to AMD Radeon graphics drivers. Google search can lead you astray

Beware of fake links to AMD Radeon graphics drivers.  Google search can lead you astrayWhat is the fastest way to install graphics card drivers on a computer? Many people will probably answer that it would be best to enter the appropriate phrase in the search engine and simply click the first link that comes to mind. It turns out, however, that it is not as simple as it may initially seem… The example described today by Sekurak shows that even Google is able to lead the user astray.

This situation once again shows us how much you need to be vigilant even when simply browsing the internet. Most users will probably notice the strange link, but some may click on the link and start downloading.

AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX vs NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 – Graphics card performance test. Which is better to choose?

If you now enter “radeon driver” into the most popular search engine, you should pay attention to the first link marked as an advertisement. Unfortunately, it does not link to the AMD website. There is no denying that the link looks quite suspicious, but when you click on it, the site is deceptively similar to the one where you can download official drivers. Nevertheless, it is fake and, what is worse, it offers to download an infected driver. Although the source does not specifically reveal the consequences of its installation, we can guess that in the worst case, the operation threatens to make data available to fraudsters.

This situation once again shows us how much you need to be vigilant even when simply browsing the internet. Most users will probably notice the strange link, but some may click on the link and start downloading. However, what evokes the most excitement, the infected site should not be so high in Google. Such a story has not happened for the first time – so far the victims have been people who wanted to, for example, log in to their bank account. However, we hope that soon everything will return to normal and similar links will not be conspicuous. Installing a solid adblock may also be a solution.
