Symantec: Religious Sites "Riskier Than Porn For Viruses"

mshmgi Ignorant volunteers are to blame (343 comments)

Most religious organizations rely on as much volunteer work and "free" services as they can get. Often, a member of the organization will offer to provide a service free of charge (such as hosting, programming, installing a CMS, setting up a wireless network in the offices, etc.). When services like that are rendered by well-intentioned, but ignorant volunteers, websites are highly vulnerable to infection.
