What is malvertising?


Malvertising, or ‘malicious advertising’, is when an attacker uses online advertising as a delivery method for malicious activity. It’s particularly sneaky because it often doesn’t need to run downloaded files – to cause problems. You can become a victim of malvertising simply by clicking on the link. Code within the adverts on the website can install ransomware or other malware.
