After research demonstrated that an alarmingly high number of ads on porn sites had malware, the porn business is now saying they've gotten cleaned up.

Researcher Conrad Longmore recently published a report on the malicious ads which have frequently been found on porn sites, such as xHamster and Pornhub. The report was based on data obtained from Google’s Safe Browsing system, and found that of the ads featured on xHamster, 42% contained malware, while over 50% of the ads on Pornhub were malicious. You can be fairly certain other advertised porn sites will have similar figures. Yikes.

The kids don't get it, but WE know what's going on here.

 

The reason for the alarmingly high rates of malware on these sites is that many adult advertising networks simply don’t check their ads: The adverts are pushed to their servers, and without much more than a glance, the networks okay them. This of course gives a perfect window for slipping in some unwanted malware.

 

After Longmore’s report came out, a spokesperson from both sites has released a statement saying that the issue has been resolved; advertising from infectious sources has been blocked. xHamster reports that it is now virtually impossible to sneak malware onto the site due to some new checking system that has been put in place. There are 15.5 billion (!) ads on the site every month, and of those, only a fraction have been linked to malware, claims the site’s owner, noting also that those ads are removed immediately. Of course, with 15.5 billion ads to sort through, it may be difficult to actually uphold that statement.
