Surf With Protection, Folks

Posted By on Wed, May 2, 2012 at 3:00 PM

According to anti-virus vendor Symantec, web users are more likely to have their computers attacked with malicious code while surfing religious sites than porn sites.

From Phys.org:

Websites with religious or ideological themes were found to have triple the average number of "threats" that those featuring adult content, according to Symantec.

"We hypothesize that this is because pornographic website owners already make money from the Internet and, as a result, have a vested interest in keeping their sites malware-free; it's not good for repeat business," (Symantec said.)

So there you have it. Wrap up your firewall before you worship on the web, or your computer might experience the technological equivalent of a burning bush.
