PornHub and YouPorn. In case you prefer using this website, be aware of the displayed banners and ads. They hide infected cookiecheck.js code which might download trojans into PCs. This malware is particularly dangerous since it can wreck system registry and ‘invite’ other highly disturbing ‘guests’ – ransomware viruses.

Redtube. This pornographic website failed to escape the attention of hackers as well. Various malicious files, such as keyloggers, so called ‘fileless infections,’ trojans, worms were noticed roaming in the web page. The main principle of these threats is that they can collect confidential information, such as passwords, logins, the data of banking account and then disappear. Moreover, the compiled data might be transferred to anonymous third parties.

Hamster. A significant part of the visitors of this web page has encountered ransomware. This virus spreads via Sex Messenger ads. The malware is programmed to enter victim’s computer and scan for the files with the format names, such as .doc, .jpg .m4u .mp3, etc. Therefore, the ransomware encrypts the data using a public key while the private key leading to the decryption process is stored in the servers monitored by cyber criminals. In order to get it, users have to pay a ransom.

Xvideos. If your hobby is watching hanky panky videos, then beware that in exchange for such satisfaction your computer might have received a bonus – ransomware. The website also uses Sex Messenger chat as Hamster website. Moreover, beware of related advertisements labeled as Sex Messenger.

There is also a good news to announce. It has been reported that the major threats and infections have bee removed from these websites, so you are free to use them. However, you should remember that everything has its price. Even if you find great pleasure in surfing in those websites, keep in mind that you can never know when they might be attacked by malware again. For that purpose, you need to have a reliable ‘partner’ – anti-spyware program, for example, Reimage, which can guard your system while you indulge in your preferred activities. Lastly, do not forget to keep it updated so that it could function properly.
