Since it seems that adult content or porn sites are good places to get infected with malware, viruses, trojans and rogue programs, are there any safe sex positive adult content sites out there. Also are there any safe social networking sites or chat rooms.

Nothing is safe anymore. Even on standard sites like MySpace and Facebook, people post links to malware, embed malicious script in form of Iframes etc. So you need to use some tools to prevent the attack. Some of the things I use are :

- Surf the internet using Sandboxie. This way even if some nasty thing infects, it will stay inside Sandboxie which you can later purge.
- Use Firefox browser which is safer. Use add-ons like NoScript which disables scripting and blocks XSS. Also Web-Of-Trust is a good plugin.
- Use a good anti-virus like avast! which monitors all the internet traffic for nasty things.

In my opinion IRC chat rooms are much better and safer than modern day instant messengers.

Take a look here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...t&p=1571233 regarding computer security and adult sites. Pay particular attention to the section right after: Tips to protect yourself against malware and reduce the potential for re-infection:

Since this topic has a very high potential of violating forum rules, by further discussion of subject matter, this topic is closed.
