iGoogle gadgets used to spam with McAfee,Inc. name

I was searching for a new iGoogle gadgets to add to my iGoogle dashboard for my security research and  came across something quite interesting. If you search the iGoogle gadget directory for “mcafee security” you come up with some interesting spam gadgets that are using the images to advertise within the directory’s search results titled “Do you know?”. I’ve not been brave enough on my production machine to click to add them but I imagine there’s some nice malware linked if a user were to add them to their iGoogle and click on the links the iGoogle gadget creates.
