It is not a believe I have, it is that other thing, ahem, knowledge. And since I have been running Mac OS X since 2004 and visiting all those sites being called shady (porn, torrents, wares, ...) and clicking away on them, I still not have contracted one virus or any other malware. Probably due to common sense.
