Any website built by or for somebody who doesn't understand or care why
they should use another approach is an excellent target for any
criminals looking to exploit weak websites.

So you tell me that there might be criminals who pose as small Web
site producers who use the work for B&B owners to produce something
that attacks my Linux browser with flash plugin? Or who produce
fake sites with B&B information and seed that information in
tripadvisor and other rating sites so that people like me visit them?

In my world, back-on-the-envelop risk analysis tells me that I can
take that risk. There are much more important things to pay
attention to, securitywise, IMHO.
