Whatever you do, don't visit this one malware-infected website

There are already plenty of reasons you should avoid visiting pornographic websites on the Internet, but I've got a new one to add to the list for good measure. Computers visiting a popular adult site called Xtube are now being infected with a dangerous Trojan virus. I'm not visiting sites like this anyway, but anyone who is should definitely stay away.

Visitors get redirected to an exploit landing page via rotating domains. The payload has been identified by Malwarebyes as Trojan.MSIL.ED.

Instead of infecting users through pop-up ads or other advertisements, the Trojan is actually present in the website, which means just about any visitor could be infected without having to click on a pop-up ad.
