Basically any website that is not mainstream. Mainstream includes all news, newspapers, popular blogs and forums, and basically every link you ever see posted here. Malicious sites are 90% porn and 9% too-good-to-be-true.
Not true this time around . I had this virus on a laptop my wife uses for her non malicious shopping, news and travel sites.
Even mainstream sites can’t be trusted. If you think only porn sites have viruses, you’re very naive.
Sorry, but I have seen malware from "popular" automotive forums and at least one link from an auction site.
While its true that certain types of sites have a higher incidence of malware it is not that simple.
Sites which focus on content intended for children, celebrities, porn, gambling and a few other areas have a higher risk for malware.
Sites such as Foxnews, Drudgereport, Walmart and many other mainstream sites have been compromised to serve malware. Visiting those sites was enough to allow malware into your unprotected computer regardless of the OS.
This is often done through the advertising content those sites use to generate revenue. The criminal writes the malware and inserts it into an ad. They submit the ad to the advertising company which puts it on the mainstream sites. In other cases the sites themselves are compromised when the owners fail to maintain it properly and they get hacked.
We had one customer who had a linux site compromised when they failed to properly patch the installed software.
