Surf Warning

McAffee has released a report on the world's riskiest domains. The world's worst offender is from the country of Tokelau, a group of islands in the south pacific. The country uses the .tk domain and more than 10% of those domains are pegged as dangerous.
Of the other major top-level country domains, 5.6% of the sites in Romania (.ro) and 4.5% of those for Russia (.ru) were among the riskiest. The two nations also placed second and third, respectively, in the percentage of their country domains that host malicious code.
Keep an eye out for those domains while you are surfing for porn, um, I mean doing research for your masters thesis.
