hacked sites pollA few months ago we polled our readers asking Do You Report Malware In Search Results To Google?

The results are in with 70% of those who replied saying they would report hacked or malicious results to Google.

However, a large 15% said they would not. I am a bit surprised anyone wouldn't want to report malicious or hacked stuff to Google, if it could protect others from being infected with a virus. But those are the numbers.

Another 10% or so said they are not sure.
