Normal Sites Like Google Host Malware

It used to be that if you avoid dicey sites, like porn, you could stay aware from malware. But that's not the case any more, as even reputable sites like Google and The New York Times get snagged by links to spyware-laden sites.

And, as online advertising grows, which it inevitably will, the problem will only get worse. The problem is called cross-linking, as major web sites have links to less reputable sites, without even knowing it.
