Googles strength and popularity on the internet play parts in crowing the search company as the "king of malware" by security company Barracuda Networks.
Barracuda Networks analyzed 25,000 trending topics over 5.5 million search results and found that Google accounted for 69 percent of all malware found. Yahoo accounted for 18 percent, while Bing (which supplies Yahoo search) had 12 percent. Twitter made up the remaining 1 percent.
The distribution could be partially attributed to the popularity of the search engines. According to comScore, 62.6 percent of all U.S. search traffic is from Google, 18.9 percent is from Yahoo and 12.7 percent is from Bing.
Google is also the quickest search engine in picking up new trend topics from Twitter, taking only 1.2 days to be indexed by the search engine. It takes 4.3 days on Bing and 4.8 days on Yahoo.
