Porn sites reject 'putting visitors at risk of downloading malware' claim.

London, Apr 16 ( ANI ): Pornography websites have rejected claims that content on their website is putting visitors at risk of downloading malicious software.

Last week, a research, conducted by security expert Conrad Longmore concluded that two popular sites posed high levels of risk.

One of the sites, xHamster, admitted it did suffer problems "in the past", but that rigorous systems were now in place.

A spokesman for the site said that they had an issue with malware in the past and they totally stopped working with that advertising agency because of that problem, the BBC reports.

Now our reliable partners are checking new advertisers very strictly, so it's almost impossible to put a new site with malware on xHamster, the spokesman added.

"The problem is that even reliable advertisers sometimes can be hacked. For example, in the past we had such issues with one of the top five porn paysites in the world.

According to the report, Longmore, who published the study on his blog, called the response a 'non-denial denial'.

The research was based on statistics from Google's diagnostic service, which crawls web pages for harmful content and posts a 90-day review of what it finds. ( ANI )
