The only harm I have experienced is the unwelcome onslaught of spam-ads. Those sites to which we are redirected "mine" your contact info once you have been directed there and then sell it to various websites...haven't you wondered where all those emails originated for male-enhancement products and spiritual "readings" and Russian women just waiting to hear from you and...well, you get the idea!
...but, no, none of them have infected my computer or iPhone with any viruses or malware, at least to my knowledge.
