Symantec released few days ago list of dirtiest websites.

It is scary that those websites contain over 18000 threats in average when "normal" malware site has "only" around 20 threats.

One of the worst sites is aladeldotnet (don't visit!) which has over 50000 threats. In those websites you can get infected by just visiting.

Entire list isn't published but here are some samples.

Panda will co-operate with WOT

WOT is a wonderful free addon for Firefox and IE that warns you about online scams and risky websites that try to deliver malware or send spam. I have personally tried also McAfee SiteAdvisor but after testing it look like that WOT ratings are more reliable and change faster if there are some errors.

Now there are good chances that this freebie will come even better as Panda and WOT have announced partnership. This means that WOT will add bad sites found by Panda.

I suggest that you try WOT if you already haven't. It makes your surfing experience safer.
