    Does anyone have opinions or facts about whether any of the popular porn sites could lead to your computer becoming infected with a virus / malware?

    Always good to have an adblocker on there. A lot of the viruses come from ads on the sites.

    Also, good to have good anti malware programs, like Spyware Doctor, or MalwareBytes.

    I highly recommend MalwareBytes. I got a virus, and that was the only program that could 86 it.

    /BTW, the virus was from one of those damn LOL Cat sites, Not pr0n....

    For me, Firefox with Ad Block Plus and NoScript extensions do wonders; NoScript can be sort of tedious to use at first since you need to set which websites can execute scripts.

    Malwarebytes is free and does a great job finding things your virus protection misses....and fixing them.

    Most mainstream porn sites are very aware of this and go to great lengths to ensure they are virus free. Its always a good idea to have something like Norton on your machine however as blogs and less reputable sites aren't as safe.

    I spend a lot of time surfing porn for my own sites and rarely have any malicious attacks from proper sites.... just be careful with smaller tubes and blogs.

    I have Kaspersky AV and it's a very effective program. It prevents me from opening pages on sites that might be infected. But I've also used malwarebytes to root out infections. One thing I am careful about is where I download vids from.
