What is Infectious Website
We have already discussed many topics in our blog and now we are going to tell you about infectious website. We think now you are thinking that is it possible? Website and that is infectious, its cant be possible. But my dear friends it’s possible. Now definitely a question has come to your mind that so what is infectious website.
A infectious website is that website which contains virus or harmful materials for your computer and when you run that website your computer will face problem and if you have strong antivirus or use good browser like Mozilla or IE or Google Chrome they will alert you that you are going to visit an infectious website which can cause problem to your computer. Now if you don’t visit its ok but if you continue there is every possibility of installing virus or Trojan in your computer even your antivirus can’t stop it to install it. So we think you have understood how danger it is. But there are also some websites for which browser will not alert you about its infectiousness but they are infectious. Now you should realize which is dangerous and which is not though it is infectious. The infection report which shows the containing about virus, Trojan and worm and other vulnerable software are dangerous but the others are not so vulnerable.
How the websites get infectious?
When a website is taken control by outsider and installs some hidden vulnerable software or Trojan in its content, it gets infectious or when the web administrator installs it with its content for attacking the target machine which visits its site and this happens in case when you visit some porn site or hackers own site and in this cases your browser even cant alert you about its vulnerability.
Even our experience says that one well known Management and Engineering College’s website is also vulnerable and if you visit you will be attacked by Trojan and virus and those will be installed automatically.
Now see the scan report of that website and we are not telling the name of that College.
