[TheAge]Top 100 virus-infected websites exposed

post #1 of 61

The 100 websites most affected by viruses each have about 18,000 nasties to attack net users' computers, an internet security company says.

Simply visiting one of the "Top 100 Dirtiest" websites - without downloading or even clicking anything - could expose your computer to infection and put your personal information into the hands of criminals, anti-virus software company Norton Symantec said.

Company spokeswoman Natalie Connor said the list was compiled using global data collected on Norton Safe Web, a site that analyses websites' security risks and has 20 million users providing site reviews.

The top 100 infected sites had on average 18,000 threats and 40 per cent of the sites had more than 20,000 threats.

A staggering 75 per cent of websites on the list were found to be distributing "malware" for more than six months.

Malware is malicious software that can damage or compromise a computer system without the owner's consent.
Best not to visit them. But this is from the age.

You most certainly can, usually in the form of malware such as worms and trojans- many of which install software on your system and are a b*tch to remove. One example would be the Anti-Virus 2009 trojan which blocks your NAT services (you are unable to access the web) with an incessant and annoying pop up in a red applet that urges you to utilize the Antivirus program. Whether you click "to use the program". "or "to continue without protection" you are screwed because the script in the background of either button installs the malicious software (a common developer trick to ensnare PC illiterates). This infected a system here at work and it took me three hours to remove it, and system restore was useless. So if you want to laugh, google "Antivirus 2009" and access the webpage for it...and let us know what you think.
