Google has purged its index of the thousands of malware sites that wormed their way into results lists for hundreds of legitimate search phrases, researchers have confirmed.

"They look gone to us," said Alex Eckelberry, the CEO of Sunbelt Software, the company that broke the news earlier this week of a massive, co-ordinated campaign by attackers to spread malware through search results on Google, Yahoo, Microsoft Live Search and other sites.

"Google did confirm yesterday with us that they were working the case, and they are good about nailing this stuff," Eckelberry added in an email late Wednesday afternoon. Sunbelt had notified Google of its findings on Monday.
