Google: 9,500 New Malicious Sites Appear Each and Every Day
Knowledge is power, and Spiderman always said that great power came with great responsibility, but what we're learning this week isn't making us feel proactive -- instead it's making us want to don our tinfoil hats and curl up in a ball in the deepest corner of our darkest closets. A day after Google filled us in on just how many speech-squashing takedowns it gets from the U.S. government, the company pulled the curtain even farther with a blog post this morning sharing just how many badware-peddling sites are online. It's a lot.

Give Google enough cash, and they'd replace a genuine link with a malicious one.
Okay, okay, trolling mode off!
Is there a possibility that Google recognizes these websites when they update their search index? Just a thought, though I would have no idea if this is how it works (forever noob xD)
