hiya everyone!

The ever increasing rise in technology has also led to the increase in security risks. The most common threat that we come across everyday is of malware/trojans. The idea of this post is to make people aware of the infected websites that you may have come across while surfing the net. It'd be really appreciated if everyone who comes across this thread posts the trojan infected websites and help reduce the risk of being infected.

Thanks :thumbsup:

that's the reason we use a custom hosts file, the list would be in the tens of thousands

when in doubt see what google says about the site

use firefox with no script and then check the McAfee site advisor

The list would become too long and forever-evolving
When we do run across a post that provides links, we make them non-clickable, so members who are not that well versed with malware do not inadvertently become infected

There are plenty of alternatvies. I use finjan. have a look at this: http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm and this: http://www.funkytoad.com/content/view/13/31/ - may be it helps.

ruby, shouldnt it be dependent on the browser rather than on the windows? :thumbsup: - ok my bad:

Okay i checked out Mcafee site advisor but it passes on all the infected websites and thats weird.. howver user comments are useful. I don't know why but i think its the companies that create antivirus softwares also end up creating malware just to sell their products.. Would u guyys agree?
