The data includes both attacking and victim pages, and it shows how well web hosts cope with successful infections. Combined, the new information doesn’t paint a pretty picture. Google spotted a total of 67,909 compromised sites just in mid-June, and it still takes over a month for most affected webmasters to scrub their servers clean.
