Some web sites contain both dangerous malware and also content you do not want to see. If you are a parent with children that use a home computer, the ability to block adult websites can be very useful. These sites can also cause malware and virus infections on your computer system. While Exterminate It! cannot block these sites, it can protect your computer from malware infections.

Porn Sites Can Deliver Malware

The risk of getting malware installed on your computer can be much higher when visiting porn websites than normal ones. So having anti-malware protection installed and running on your system can help prevent these infections.

Sitepedia

Exterminate It! has a Sitepedia that lists all of the known malware sites on the internet. This list is constantly expanding, and many of them are adult websites.

Some sites listed in the Sitepedia database include:

  • hotgirldream.net
  • xxx-white-tube.net
  • pornmegatube.net
  • mxviewworldmy1.com
  • amateurs-xxxmovies.com
  • immenseclips.com
  • realonlinevideo-2008.com

Codec Websites Are Dangerous

Codec websites can spread Trojans that are presented as video codecs. A codec is a computer program for encoding or decoding a digital data stream, such as online videos.

Codec websites look very similar to popular video viewing sites such as YouTube. The user is usually asked to download and install the video codec in order to view the video content.

Adult websites primarily rely on video content, so codecs are likely in higher quantity on these sites. In comparison, popular news sites such as CNN, BBC, etc. are more publicly scrutinized due to their respective market, so are less likely to pass infections via their own videos. If malware were to be passed through a video on one of these sites, it would likely be removed more quickly than if it were from some obscure adult-oriented site.

Since Exterminate It! is designed to detect and remove malware, any infection from a video based site can be detected and resolved by the program.
