    Regular Domains More Likely To Host Malware Than Smut Sites

    I found this article on the registry. I thought it was pretty interesting because it directly conflicts with the standard view on that porn sites are more dangerous than other domains.

    Here is the link to the article!

    Interesting!

    "We are not recommending people to start searching for erotic content but the statistics are clear - for every infected adult domain we identify there are 99 others with perfectly legitimate content that are also infected," commented Avast CTO Ondrej Vlcek.
    Well, pr0n is a major internet industry so it makes sense that the staff take care of their sites?

    Also, if I were to infect sites I would avoid adult content and warez hosts as people would be much more likely to be on their guard when visiting them?
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
