Of the negative things to happen to people writing content and software – we had spotted some piracy stats before – we spotted this today:

“Google said that between 12 and 14 million search queries per day return warnings that at least one of the results listed in the Google search results were compromised.

Google finds about 9,500 new malicious websites every day and sends “thousands of notifications daily to webmasters.””

14 Million queries per day is a huge number. But how do we digest this stat? Google handles 2 billion plus queries a day !
