Most Dangerous Search Terms

Not all websites are created equal, as this report from McAfee makes clear. The authors examine a growing phenomenon–the use of search engines as tools for ill-gotten profit–by analysing the risks incurred in searching for 2,600 of the world’s most popular words and phrases. If you’ve ever searched for lyrics, thought about downloading a celebrity screensaver, or been enticed by the offer of a free iPod, you owe it to yourself to read this report.
