No doubt there is a MAJOR issue with injections and hacked sites. Its Googles way of handling it that's poor. Especially when they admit that their system is not perfect!
I can see the "Next Big Thing" in SEO being some group that offers a service of exploiting websites and injecting malware, so they get the "Kiss-Of-Death" discredit from Google in SERP's. After all, who wants to walk into a Leper's home, even if its just a false positive, or someone elses temporary lie about them?
I still hold firm that if Google is concerned about its own visitors, it should just sandbox the site in question, remove it from serp's completely, and make site owners use their tools to see why. (That's got to be done anyhow doesn't it?)
Legit problem, wrong way of dealing with it, that's going to hurt a lot of innocent businesses who didn't know better.
