The Top 9 RISKIEST Places To Surf The Internet: AVG

Posted: Updated:

AVG, a security company, has ranked the top ten riskiest places for people to browse the web, as measured by users' likelihood of being attacked by malicious viruses.

AVG explains that its list of the riskiest nations is based on data collected from "AVG's vast user network, spanning 100 million PCs in 144 countries." It's based a week's worth of data: AVG says to compile its list, it tracked the number of worldwide Internet attacks, as well as the frequency with which AVG was installed, during the last week of July.

Given that AVG is in the Internet security business, and the limited timeframe of the research, the rankings should, of course, be taken with a grain of salt. Check out the rankings in the slideshow below, then see the most dangerous celebrities to search online.

Which countries were you most surprised to see on the list?
