Google Wave Ridden By Cybercriminals - Google Blog - InformationWeek

A stark cybercrime reality check; see the full article (to be clear: this scam is about exploiting search engine optimization techniques designed to lure people to malicious Web sites, not an attack on Google Wave directly)

Wave is being made available on Wednesday to 100,000 or so developers, early adopters, and Google Apps customers. Unfortunately, cybercriminals are making the most of the launch: They've rolled out a blackhat SEO poisoning campaign to turn interest in Wave into a computer infection.

(As a gauge of that interest, consider that the price for a Google Wave invitation on eBay was bid up to $5,100 before the auction was suspended.)
