Malvertising - Is I-Net soon a forbidden zone?
« on: May 25, 2020, 10:22:26 AM »
Internet - the recommended zone for criminals - more and more - is (soon) no funny any more.
Nevertheless, I rely on comodo - is experience

Some of the world's most popular websites, including those of the New York Times, Spotify and the London Stock Exchange have inadvertently displayed malicious ads, putting their users in jeopardy. What's worrying is that people can get infected even if they don't click on the images: Often it's enough if they just load. This method is called 'drive-by download,' because all a victim has to do is 'drive by' a web page.

Cyber criminals use malvertising to deploy various forms of money-making malware, including ransomware, cryptomining scripts or banking Trojans. For attackers, this endeavor can be very profitable. "Today, malvertising groups are highly organized businesses," says Jerome Dangu, co-founder and CTO of Confiant, a company that develops solutions against bad ads.
