...don't surf dicey sites...
It isn't the "dicey" site that gets you as much as the (compromised) "popular" site.

See 'watering hole attack'.

I had a co-worker who went to a naval radio station in northern California to perform a software upgrade on one of their systems.  The equipment was located in a 'TEMPEST' certified, secure facility.  She happened to notice sunlight on a wall and looked up towards the ceiling and noted a fairly large hole in the building wall with clear plastic taped over it.  That was where some cables had previously been routed into the building through a filter panel.  The panel was redundant and had been removed.  The facility was awaiting a contractor to patch up the hole and had been waiting for several weeks!  Huge amounts of money spent to make the classified data secure had been wiped out in one stupid move.

Did the facility lose any data as a result?
