(January 11, 2010) Miscreants intent on spreading malware appear to be preying on people's unfounded fears that Facebook plans to begin charging users for its services.

The 100 most dangerous sites on the web are propagating an average of 18,000 different pieces of malware, according to leading security software maker Symantec. While 48 of the top 100 worst are adult-themed sites, others featured diverse topics, ranging from deer hunting and catering, to figure skating, electronics, and legal services. "We used to tell people if you stick with the 'safe neighborhood' you will be safe, and what we see from this list is that even if you stick to the safe neighborhood, it doesn't mean you are safe," said Symantec's Dan Schrader. "Your own judgment doesn't tell you anything about the security practices of that site." Ken Pappas of Top Layer Security adds that "The list of most-offensive websites is changing and new websites are constantly being infected. This is not something like building a ten most-wanted for criminals at large. "Whether it's ten viruses or ten thousand doesn't matter; the point is, many people are going to what they believe is a legitimate and trusted website. They have no idea or warnings it will potentially put malware in the computer."
