Google’s security team has identified the current Top 10 malware sites in the world. The list reads like a rogue’s gallery of the darker side of the web. Sites listed generally use ‘drive-by downloading’ to install and run malware on vistors’ computers automatically. To make things worse many of these domains are linked through to via advertising and other third party content on a vast number of high-traffic websites.
Malware infections are a growing problem. Popular celebrity gossip site Digital Spy had to apologise this week after it inadvertently served up malware in banner ads.
