Mcafee offers up some ideas on browsing safer: stay away from chinese domains for a start.

Of all ".hk" sites McAfee tested, it flagged 19.2 percent as dangerous or potentially dangerous to visitors; it flagged 11.8 percent of ".cn" sites and 11.7 percent of ".info" sites that way.

A little more than 5 percent of the sites under the ".com" domain ? the world's most popular ? were identified as dangerous.
Not really surprising. I wonder how many are actually set up by the chinese government for spying purposes, on the outside world or even their own citizens.
