Malvertising: When simply viewing an ad means you could be “hacked”

A sometimes obscure web of online crime known as malvertising (‘malicious advertising’) is back. It has made millions for its criminal operators over more than a decade. At its worst, the attacks can infect your computer without so much as a mouse click. Simply view an ad and you’re hacked. Think the ads are on nefarious websites? Think again. The New York Times, Reuters, and even Telstra have housed malvertising ads.
