Malserver ...


Google published an interesting study about web servers and malware...

The link is here.

It is very interesting to see the differences between the different web servers, according to the country they are hosted on.
And then, even more, to see which of these servers are hosting the biggest amount of malware.
For example, in China, nearly all malware are running on IIS, while in Germany there's almost only malware on Apache.

What also astonishes me is the growth of nginx, knowing it's a very young product (first public version had been released in october 2004) ... Of course, it's mostly used in Russia, as it is a russian product, but still, I would have thought it wasn't so spread worldwide already ...
