    Well still, what's the best way to actually find them "yourself" and not that way.

    Use a common keyword to your search engine to find the list of blocklisted websites which can be easier to determine which provide regular updates or not.

    Check your spam folder in your e-mail - usually several there.

    Try browsing softonic and maybe google some sketchy stuff, for example "Win an iPad for free" or "Photoshop serial crack".
