garg0yle (208225) writes "According to McAfee, more than a third of Cameroon domains (TLD of .cm) is infested with viruses or other not-so-fun party treats. Given that it's very easy to mis-type .com as .cm, this puts the computers of a lot of fat-fingered typists in peril. Second place on the most-infested domains list goes to China (.cn), while Hong Kong (last year's "winner") is now comfortably middle-of-the-pack."
