Not today though.
According to Google, about 1% of all results returned by their search engine linked to content that likely is malicious.
"In the past few months, more than 1% of all search results contained at least one result that we believe to point to malicious content and the trend seems to be increasing."
And ad networks are part of the problem?
"In our analysis, we found that on average 2% of malicious web sites were delivering malware via advertising."
Or maybe just some of the ad networks?
"advertising space is often syndicated to other parties who are not known to the web site owner."
And of course we can always depend on the open-source Internet community to keep us safe.
"We found that over 38% of both Apache and PHP versions were outdated increasing the risk of remote content injection to these servers."
I'm not surprised. Keeping the LAMP stack up to date tends to be a pain.
And staying away from porn sites doesn't help.
"Although we found that adult web pages may increase the risk of exploitation, each DMOZ category was affected."
It is getting tough to practice safe browsing.
Lynx on OpenVMS anyone?
