I had a google search result for an oracle related query the other day warn me that the site google was recommending had been used to deliver malware 3 times over the last day (or something like that). I can't remember what site it was, but from the url it seemed to me that it would have been a trustworthy site that was likely compromised.

1 - You could try to stay off the world wide wasteland or www as it is written

2 - Avoid the use of any IT site that does not belong to a vendor whose product you use

Honestly, about all you can do is keep your security software (firewall, anti-virus, anti-etc...) and OS patching up to date and educate the user community to be careful in what links the user selects.  You still have the problem of drive by infections but there is only so much you can do.
