Over 10% of Alexa TOP Million Websites Found Not Safe
Sucuri Labs decided to scan the most popular websites on the internet to see how bad, or good, they are in terms of web security.
Their testing was very simple. they chose the top 1 million sites (according to Alexa), and checked the sites for those 4 issues:
- Is the site Blacklisted? Sites were checked on Google, Norton, McAfee, ESET and Sucuri Labs.
- Is the site infected with hidden SPAM?
- Is the site infected with malware like drive-by-downloads, exploit kits, and similar issues?
- Is the site running outdated software?
