Google: King of Malware

Barracuda Networks claims that Google is the "King of Malware," linking to twice as much malware as rivals, Bing, Yahoo!, and Twitter -- combined. The caveat is that Google's engine is so powerful, it reigns as king of malware largely because it makes new information available so quickly. It is also the most popular search engine, by far, with nearly 63% of all U.S. search traffic.

Some analysts point-out that Barracuda's numbers match-up almost exactly with the market shares, suggesting Google's popularity may be the controlling factor.
