McAfee uncovers riskiest domains | Security – CNET News

You may want to think twice if you hit a site with a .cm extension. That belongs to Cameroon, pegged by McAfee as the world’s riskiest domain.

McAfee's third annual “Mapping the Mal Web” report, released Wednesday, looks at riskiest and safest domains across the globe. The small nation on the west coast of Africa reached the top spot this year with 36.7 percent of its sites posing a security risk. Because .cm is often a typo for .com, McAfee said, cybercrooks like to use that domain to set up typo-squatted sites to hit you with malware.
