    Percentage of USA websites hosting drive-by downloads: (data from Security Intelligence Report Volume 11 Regional Threat Assessment)
    2010 3Q - 0.032%
    2010 4Q - 0.007%
    2011 1Q - 0.764%
    2011 2Q - 0.817%

    Notice the large relative increase from 2010 to 2011.

    Thanks all for the stats!

    MrBrian - do those statistics refer to pages with a script pointing to a third party site with the actual exploit kit, or do they purely mean sites actually hosting the exploit kit themselves?

    I'd be interested in stats for how many legitimate sites get hacked with the former scenario in mind.

    There was a recent article (recent as in two months or so) with stats about hacked sites distributing malware. Can't find it though =\

    You're welcome :).

    I'm not sure either on that matter.
