NEW YORK, NY – Blue Coat, a web security company reports that nearly 25% of malware on mobile devices comes from pornography websites. In fact, if you just visit porn sites on your tablet or cell phone you’re three times as likely to download malware. This isn’t the first warning about porn and malware; they go together like Dick and Jane.

Though only 1% of mobile users pop-in on porn websites, it led to more malware on mobile devices than email spam, malicious websites and fake apps combined. Experts say the problem with watching porn on your smartphone is that it`s more difficult to tell if a website is legit.

As bad as malware is now, it’ll be much worse when the majority of people stop banking from their PC’s and use their phones instead.

The bottom line; if you think of porn as a safe way to get your freak on, your phone may need to see the doctor soon.
