- For major country domains, the riskiest ones are Romania (.ro) with 5.6 percent risky sites and Russia (.ru) with 4.5 percent risky sites.
- Island nations, known for offering free or anonymous registration, ranked highest on the danger list. Among them: Sao Tome/Principe (.st) off Africa, at a whopping 19 percent; Tokelau (.tk) in the South Pacific, at 10 percent; the Turks and Caicos (.tc) in the Caribbean, also at 10 percent; and the South Georgia/South Sandwich Islands (.gs) near Antartica, at 9 percent.
- For generic domains, the riskiest TLD is .info–8 percent of its sites are rated as risky. Coming in second is the ubiquitous “.com,” with 6 percent.
- The least risky sites are hosted by those honest Scandinavians. Four of the five best rated are Nordic countries–Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland. Also in the top five: Ireland.
- Safest place on the Web: “.gov.” Restricted to U.S. government agencies, it was the only TLD in which no risky sites were found.
- Worst places to download: Samoa (.ws), .biz, and Bulgaria (.bg). Web users randomly downloading from these domains face at least a 1 in 10 chance of dealing with a risky site.
- Worst places for spam: .info. “A stunning 73.2 percent of the more than 6,000 .info sites that we have tested for E-mail practices are rated risky,” the report says. Trailing .info are Russia (at 22 percent) and South Korea (at 20 percent). In other words, consumers who offer their E-mail addresses to randomly chosen sites in those domains risk a blizzard of unwanted E-mail.
