More risk for malware from religious sites than porn

Look on the sidebar on every porno-tube on the internet and you’ll find ads. Lots of small ads when you pause it, ads all over the place. That’s what makes these websites profitable, adspace for the YouPorn header goes for about 10k a month. PornHub, 52k or so at the current market rate. If people get infected with malware often enough, you lose advertisers and viewers. It’s simply good business.

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

“It is interesting to note that websites hosting adult/pornographic content are not in the top five, but ranked tenth,” Symantec said in the report.

“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.” Link
