high risk sites

not sure if this is the right location

in the office we plan on implementing web marshal, but i was also asked to compile a list oh "high risk" sites. Ones that may have active content that could be a security hazard to the office and also a list of sites that would be classed as "productivity loss" sites.

at the moment I'm pretty must stuck to the likes of bebo, myspace and the usual social networking sites.

My question is are these types of site a risk to the firm? or are they just a productivity loss? also is there any place I could get a list of such sites so i can present it to the boss?

obviously I'm not looking for people to give me a list of "sweaty palm" sites but ones that could pose a security risk to the firm as they might contain malwear or viruses etc.
