Symantec has listed the top 100 dirty websites as detected by its Norton Safe Web.

According to Symantec, almost 50 percent of the “dirtiest” websites provide adult content. However, the company has found that the remainder of the list include sites dedicated to deer hunting, catering, figure skating, legal services, and even buying electronics. 

What makes these websites ‘dirty’ is the fact that the average number of threats on the Dirtiest Websites list is 18,000 per site and that 40 percent of them have more than 20,000 threats.

Malware is the most common threat represented on the Dirtiest list, followed by security risks and browser exploits.  Simply visiting one of these sites, without downloading or clicking on anything in particular, could put you at risk of exposing your computer to infection, and worse, put your identity, personal and financial information into the hands of cybercriminals.

 

To find the dirt, Norton Safe Web crawls the Web and performs analysis of millions of websites, and benefits from a network of more than 20 million Norton Community Watch members that automatically submit suspicious URLs for analysis in real-time.  Norton Safe Web analyses websites using signature-based file scanning, intrusion detection engines, behavioural detection and install/uninstall analysis to identify security risks including phishing sites, malicious downloads, browser exploits and links to unsafe external sites.  

Symantec’s Senior Vice President, Consumer Business Unit, Rowan Trollope said, “This list underscores what our research shows; there has been exponential growth in the number of online threats that are constantly evolving as cybercriminals look for new ways to target your money, identity or assets.”

“In 2008, most new infections occurred while people were surfing the Web. Norton Safe Web provides visual ratings that let consumers know about potential risks before visiting a site.  Armed with this information, consumers are empowered to make informed decisions about which sites to visit,” concluded Trollope.
