Google search for malware accessible to all…



The metasploit project is now hosting a malware search that uses Google. It essentially uses a binary google search technique that was referenced last week to find malicious files hosted on the web. Of course, this will be partly limited by Google’s indexing which recently has not been quite as thorough as before, but… all you have to do is search by a virus name and find matches. I can see where this is useful for research. What I DON’T understand is why Google doesn’t integrate scanning of content into the googlebot indexing. It would take a lot of processor power. Well…. I think Google would come close to having enough to take a stab at this. I think they should AT LEAST…


Apply this kind of scanning to their paid advertisor links. I recall a recent article that said, not only was Google search (and other search engines) dangerous for finding malware, but the paid ads weren’t safe either.

In fact, I see the paid ads as a good proving ground for this type of google effort to make the web just a bit safer for browsers.
