Porn Sites as Malware Distributors

Library, School, Church and Hotel Network Security

Want to avoid viruses, botnets and trojans in workplace computers?  A key strategy is to prevent users from surfing to adult web pages.   According to Chris Overton, VP at Cyberpartol:   “Pornography sites are one of the major distributors of viruses and other malware.   To quote from the CyberSharks book we’re about to release, ‘Websites offering adult content are the single most significant security threat for Internet users, comprising 31 percent of dangerous websites.  Adult and XXX sites account for the largest percentage of web sites from which viruses are spread.  (Web of Trust, 2008)’  This means that companies can go a long way toward protecting their networks from malware simply by blocking pornographic sites.  SiteSURV can provide this protection.”

    In the documented history of mankind the church has been more evil than any porn site could ever hope to be goofball! No porn site has ever burned someone alive,gouged their eyes out,forced them to drink poison,crucified them,tortured them,imprisoned them,or murdered their legacy by burning their cultural archives!! Wake up man! That said, I do believe the usage of porn sites has broken several of my PCs.This doesn’t make porn evil,it makes those who created the virus/maleware evil!!Porn unto itself carries no intent or thirst for malicious suffering.We can catch a virus now through our car tire’s sensors,shall we deem those evil next? When do we focus on the creators?
