“So today we’re launching a new section on our Transparency Report that will shed more light on the sources of 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.”
You can visit this page for new Safe Browsing information, including how this may impact you in the future.
It is here that you will find information pertaining to everything from unsafe websites to understanding malware and much more.
