Google Diagnostic now reports on entire Networks

Recently the “Google SafeBrowser Diagnostic” has added a new feature where they not only report on malicious content on individual pages, it now reports on entire Networks (IP Blocks) … in the below example (HopOne) is a relatively small network, but the results are one of the reasons why there is so much malicious activity on the Internet …

304 sites that resulted in malicious software being downloaded without user consent” … now that is actual sites not counting the other sites that may link to these malicious sites … then “48 sites that were intermediaries for the infection of 1433 other sites” and then “46 sites that infected 1280 other sites” so as you can see the 304 sites is certainly a greater number than it sounds …

Now if you look at the first example Google uses (analystic .org) the problem expands … just look at the below numbers …
3054 scripting exploit(s), 175 trojan(s), 5 exploit(s)” and that’s just one site … scanned yesterday!

Hopone Internet is based out of Toronto … sounds like it’s time someone should contact their upstream provider and demand that Hopone clean up their act or cut off their routing to the Internet … much like what happened to McColo … one can only hope …
