How Google Can Help Stop Hackers

I just read this article about how Google helps hackers:

Google Helps Hackers

Instead of providing a mechanism to HELP hackers Google could actually help stop hackers by maintaining a list of such hacks and reporting the issue to server owners when possible. For instance instead of allowing these known hacks to get into the Google search results and cache, Google could have an automatic way to look up the domain owner and send a friendly email to those (who wish to get them) to alert them to a potential problem on their network.
