How can I exclude people from a Sharepoint 2010 search based on an AD group that they are a member of? Can this be done?

As far as I can think, you would need to create a new profile field, which is populated from the AD sync. This would be their "Group". You can then filter the search with scopes.

There is as far as I know, no direct way of achieving this.
