Malvertising Continues to Pound Legitimate Web Sites - PCWorld


Malvertising Continues to Pound Legitimate Web Sites
By George V. Hulme, CSO Mar 8, 2011 1:04 pm

In the last three months of 2010 attackers managed to serve 3 million malicious advertising, or malvertising, impressions every day. That's the headline figure from a report released today from Web security firm Dasient. According to Dasient, that's a 100 percent increase from the preceding quarter................

....These malicious ads, designed to sell anti-virus software, somehow infiltrated an ad network that is used by the London Stock Exchange. Robert McMillan has more in his report Malware ads hit London Stock Exchange site.......

........"We have been following the exploit domains in this malvertising campaign for quite a long time now, and it seems that cyber criminals frequently use fee-based advertising networks to propagate malware - that means cyber criminals are willing to pay in order to propagate malware," ..................
