The whole article stinks and maybe the survey too? This text is very poorly written:

"Just about anyone can register any Web site with any domain name. And the most common domain name is one of the riskiest: About 6% of ".com" domains are questionable, McAfee says. The riskiest generic domain name of all is ".info"; sites there have a 7.5% chance of being dangerous."

Any reporter can play with stats to make a story but if the reporter doesn't even understand the terminology, how is she going to understand the stats?
