On a regular surfing day we all come across a few questionable sites tempting us to click the link with enticing keywords. We’ve all learned our lesson in one way or another but statistically some domains are more riskier than others. A recent study rated sites based on their risk level and exposure to malware and guess who came out on top?
Vietnam domains (.VN) supposedly are the most prone to risk at 29% That number may not be surprising but the increase over last year’s number (0.9%) should be concerning. A significant increase over last year has to make security experts wonder, what the heck is going on with .VN domains? Russia (.RU) is down at number 5 with 10% of sites deemed to be risky.
So what was the most safe? Think of tentacle porn and go to your happy place. Japan (.JP) with 0.1% of sites deemed risky. Although content originating from Japan is already NSFW but you already knew that. Cyber criminals are opportunistic as ever and sites can go up and down in the blink of an eye. Happy surfing!
