true, but i figure if i stick to mostly known sites that should keep risk at a minimum.

 

plus, i got NoScript in use which i imagine helps a bit there since a lot of the side stuff on plenty of websites don't load when that's running as i only allow what i need to allow for a site to function well enough.

 

That's were most of the exploits come from. Hacked "Known" sites. Even TWIT.TV was serving out malware at one point.

Hello,

 

One thing to keep in mind is that in many anti-malware programs, detection of potentially unwanted and potentially unsafe applications is optional.  It needs to be explicitly turned on if you want that functionality.
