Google Crowned "king Of Malware"

Google has been crowned the 'king of malware' by security company Barracuda Networks, linking to twice as much malware as search rivals Bing, Yahoo and Twitter combined.

Senh: This would explain some of viruses I've been getting every so often by clicking on a link from Google's search results page. But in fairness to Google, they are by far the biggest search engine on the planet, and people do perform more than twice as many searches on Google than Bing, Yahoo, and Twitter combined.
