The world's largest porn sites infected by virus
The websites of Pornhub and Youporn discovered on September 19th, 2015, that they were hit by a so-called malware attack through a third-party advertiser, writes the Danish newspaper BT.

There is thus a risk that visitors have a virus on their computer, if they visited the website before September 19th.

For even though the companies were quick to remove the virus, the monthly visitor numbers on their sites are respectively 580 million and 220 million. It is therefore a great risk that users of these pages may be affected, according to the newspaper and several other media. It is also uncertain how long the virus was on the porn sites.

- It is malware we are talking about here. I'm 99 percent sure, says IT security expert Peter Kruse from the CSIS Security Group.

He explains that this is a technique criminals use, where they buy advertising banners, which look legitimate and then bring content of the ads that allows them to change the normal promo for a creative one that deliver malware.

It is often websites with high traffic that are affected by such problems.

He advises people to be skeptical about what pages they enter.

- The more shady websites are, the greater the risk of being affected by viruses.

He also advises to update all software and keep the anti-virus software up to date.
