Dangerous Anime Search Terms
The number of data leaks on the Internet is increasing and Internet security is a big issue. In this context, Surfshark published a study in several categories such as Actors, Singers, Movies and Games. But of course we are interested in the result for anime.
The analysis was based on the popularity ranking MyAnimeList and worked through the anime in order. On the one hand, only the anime titles were used as search terms, but the terms »torrent«, »download« and »stream« were also used. The URLs that the search engine spit out were then checked with a malware scanner.
The result was a percentage value that indicated the probability of the respective anime search terms leading someone to a website with possible malware. The top 3 consists of “Yowamushi Pedal” with 49.7%, “Dragon Ball Z Kai” with 46.6% and “Aldnoah.Zero” with 43.4%. The full top 10 list is below.
