Submission + - IIS twice as likely to serve malware as Apache (

abhinav_pc writes: Ars Technica is carrying an article about a study by Google's Anti-Malware Team which seems to confirm that Web sites running Microsoft's IIS are twice as likely to host malware than those running Apache. Last month, Google looked at 70,000 domains that were either distributing malware or hosting attack code. Nagendra Modadugu, at the company's anti malware group, wrote in a blog: "Compared to our sample of servers across the internet, Microsoft IIS features twice as often as a malware distributing server."
