Google: A quarter of Web pages are malicious.

"It's a jungle out there!"

BBC News reports on a study by Google that out of 4.5 million pages subjected to "in-depth analysis," 450 thousand could launch "drive-by downloads" and another 700 thousand could compromise a user's computer. Google has "started an effort to identify" all the malicious pages on the Web. A tall order.

Practice safe surfing, eat right, and floss your teeth (in that order).
