Google identifies 10,000 phishing and malware sites every day

Google’s Safe Browsing program is now flagging 10,000 suspect websites per day, the search giant announced in a blog post. The information is used to deliver automated warnings to Chrome, Firefox and Safari users.

The search giant also announced a new, detailed section on its Transparency Report, which will focus on malware and phishing attacks.

“You can now learn how many people see Safe Browsing warnings each week, where malicious sites are hosted around the world, how quickly websites become reinfected after their owners clean malware from their sites, and other tidbits we’ve surfaced,” said software engineer Lucas Ballard in a post on Google’s Official Blog.
