Before you click on an unknown URL, check it first using the Trend Micro Web Reputation Search Tool.
This tool can also check your own website or blog to see if it’s harboring malicious code that could hurt your sites visibility through search.
Did you know that in the United States alone, there are more than 30 million malicious URLs? The chances of you clicking on one are pretty good. It’s important to surf safe, but sometimes we tend to move through the internet too fast and that can lead to security breaches and viruses.
Check out the top 10 most popular URLs and domains that Trend Micro is blocking so you can be sure to NOT visit them.
