If you regularly search for the latest news and buzz on the Internet, then it’s time you became a little more careful. According to the 2010 threat report from WebSense, searching for news and buzz these days is more dangerous than searching for adult content. That’s because nearly 22.4% of all searches for news and buzzwords these days leads to malicious search results.

Take the recent news about Price Willion and Kate Middletown getting married. Attackers have monitored the news, and manipulated the search results to attract visitors to their sites. This is apparently happening for just about every hot buzzword or news happening on the web these days.

One of the solutions is to keep a close watch on which sites are you going to on the web, and only go to reputed news sites. Second is to use the right web filtering solutions, and if you’re already using one, then make sure you keep it updated with the latest updates.
