OUCH ! 15 Million Malicious Websites !
2/9/2006 9:22:31 AM
Okay, here’s notice that the problems in the internet are not getting better, they are getting worse, Websense announced in a press release that their database of websites that contain malicious code, peer to peer file sharing, spyware, phishing, and 80 some other categories of “bad stuff” has increased to over 15 million. 15 million websites our children could easily surf into, or we could surf into, that would try to take advantage of us somehow. This contradicts the study from Washington University I posted about here, but, that study was just a sample that grabbed data from some websites, it was not a massive undertaking like this one.

Doug, I read the attached article and it was very alarming. You're doing good work here, as I've said before, by seeking out these reports for us. I have a question about the information I read... What is P2P file sharing, and exactly what risk does it pose, do you know? From what the article said, I'm confused about it. I'd like to understand more of what you post here, but the jargon in the articles has gotten so prevalent that I might as well be reading in French about some medical threat...I just don't understand it. Thanks for any help you can give. Cheri
