Viruses hidden in porn?

Despite up-to-date anti-virus software, my computer has suffered from viruses and malware. Could these be “buried” in porn (good-gay.com, gaytube, pornhub, etc.?

 

Is it just too risky to go to any of those free porn sites?

 

I’d appreciate learning your experiences and any recommendations you may have.

I have had routine problems with threats from viruses and malware over the years by going on porn sites. On one occasion, a few years back, it destroyed all my language files, and I ended up throwing the computer in the dumpster. Since then I am more careful. Occasionally I will get warnings from my anti-virus that a threat has been blocked. I try to stay on well known porn websites, but it is risky business. My primary anti-virus is AVG. So far it has worked well for me. I would check with Deej, he is up to date on the best way to proceed if you are having on going problems.

will admit I look at much more than my fair share of the various tube sites and at pornhub....

 

as suggested by members here a few years ago, I have AVG security at the ~$50/year plan...a couple times that well-known FBI scam thing has suddenly come up and I've quickly turned off my entire computer with no bad results....otherwise, nothing bad has happened, it appears....I do that "whole computer scan" thing about once a month....and, once in a great while, my security will catch something and a box will pop up saying it has stopped the threat.....

It is very possible that the free porn sites could introduce viruses to your system. As others have mentioned, up-to-date virus software will minimize the risk that a virus will infect your computer. However, other types of sites can also contain viruses. You need to be vigilant regardless of the type of site you surf.

It can be.

 

ANY downloadable thing can carry a payload. It just can. There is exactly one way to stay 100% virus free online: don't go online. None of us are likely to do that, of course, so just like in real life PRACTICE SAFE HEX.

 

Even reputable sites can be hacked. (Any Home Depot or Target shoppers here?) And remember that tube sites are generally driven by user-uploaded content. You don't know who those users are or what sorts of payloads they're embedding in that program you're downloading. (And make no mistake, a video is a program.)

 

Porn is a desirable delivery mechanism for virus authors because it will never die and it's popular. Guys click with their dicks. We just do. Porn drove the VCR into almost every living room in the country, then the DVD player and Blu-Ray. Porn drove most development of the now-ubiquitous streaming video. (Everyone streams video *now*, but in the beginning it was mostly porn.) It's a HUGE business. It's also a big-ass target BECAUSE it's so popular.

I use Kaspersky... and if on a porn site, I often get a warning and a suggestion to get out of that site. I have had a couple of times where the virus got through and I had to take my computer and have it completely stripped of everything and then installed all the software all over again. It is a risk, like almost everything in life.. and the free sites are the worst.

It’s scary enough to make me want to unplug my computer.

 

I’m using MacAfee. Do you guys find it reliable?

 

I have MacAfee also in my system along with AVG. They run together. I prefer AVG, and use it as my primary anti-virus, since for me at least it seems more sensitive, and it is the one that always alerts me. MacAfee does daily scans, but I don't rely on it. I tried deleting it once, and was unable to, so I just left it alone. I am assuming it helps to some degree, and I can't attest to it's capabilities.

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned it yet, but: Mac OS X.

 

I've been using Macs for years, surf wherever I want, and I've never found a virus, and I don't know any Mac users that have either. (I've seen quite a few cases where if anything goes wrong with a computer, people start screaming that "it must be a virus!" but that's a different story.)

 

In theory, viruses could be developed for Macs, but in reality it hasn't every been a day-to-day problem like it is on Windows PCs.

 

Better yet, consider consuming your porn on an iPad. So far, zero worries about malware there.
