The Web’s Most Dangerous Search Terms

Well, we search the web aka Google everday…
How safe is your Gooogling?
What usu do you search? Music download,  Lyric?
Screensaver? Etc?

Lets have a look on the list below on the Web Most Dangerous Search Terms.
This list is taken from McAfee reserch report.

McAfee, of the anti-virus fame, had their researchers comb through thousands of popular keyword searches. After analyzing the frequency with which they found malicious software at each link they compiled the results. Surprisingly the common “bad” searchs that people associate with a guarantee of getting malicious software like searching for pirated software or pornography rank fairly low on the risk scale. Apparently the people behind malicious sites like to cast a wide net and use things like lyrics to popular songs and free screen savers to lure people in.
