Yesterday we reported about Santy worm which was using Google to infect phpBB sites.
News has reached us that Google has done some efforts do stop the spreading of Santy.A. The search engine is now blocking searches done by this worm.
Estimates of the impact of the Santy worm vary widely. Searches on a beta version of Microsoft's MSN Search feature for the text used to deface sites returned over 30,000 hits. However, identical searches on other engines, including the official MSN Search engine, Yahoo, and Google search engines returned far fewer hits, ranging from 785 (MSN) to 2030 (Yahoo).
