Religious Sites Offers More Malware Than Porn Sites

“Shit…Looks like I have a virus or something on my computer”

“Maybe you should stop going to so many porn sites”

This may sound like a conversation that you’ve had in the past. Porn sites typically get the blame when ever anybody gets a virus or some other malware. But it turns out the most harmful websites in terms of risk from malware infection aren’t, as you might imagine, pornography, but rather religious sites, according to Symantec’s Internet Security Threat Report.

In their findings the average number of threats found on religious sites was 115 (mostly fake antivirus software). By contrast, pornographic sites had less than a quarter, at around 25 threats per site. Of course, the number of pornographic sites is vastly greater than religious sites.

Symantec also said that only 2.4 percent of porn sites were found to be infected with malware, compared to 20 percent of blogs.

“We hypothesize that this is because pornographic website owners already make money from the Internet and, as a result, have a vested interest in keeping their sites malware-free — it’s not good for repeat business,” researchers wrote.

So theoretically, I could go visit a religious anti-porn website and gets some nasty virus that steals my identity, destroys my PC and become very unhappy. Or I could just go to Porn.com and look at some beautiful titties that put a smile on my face. Who Knew?!

 

And now for something totally unrelated…
