During their operation, the crooks showed malicious ads on 113 domains, including some big names such as The New York Times, Le Figaro, The Verge, PCMag, IBTimes, ArsTechnica, Daily Mail, Telegraaf, La Gazetta dello Sport, CBS Sports, Top Gear, Urban Dictionary, Playboy, Answers.com, Sky.com, and more.


When I used to do tech support malvertising was the #1 cause of adware and viruses installed on computers, the usual solution after cleaning the computer was to install uBlock Origin, enable the "malware domains" lists and replace the Internet Explorer shortcut with either Chrome or Firefox (little trick, change the shortcut name to Internet Explorer and change the icon to the blue 'e'). That solution used to keep computers clean for longer periods of time.
