Google used to spread Virus!!!

I was amazed when I read the article "Santy worm makes unwelcome visit" in BBC News site that speaks about the Virus SANTY that used Google to search for website bulletin boards and defaced them and spread itself across the net. According to this article Santy is not the first such Virus, but atleast for me this was a News. Anyhow once Google started blocking these search queries the rate of infection tailed off sharply.
