Next time when you see an advertisement of your favorite pair of shoes on any website, even if it is legitimate, just DO NOT CLICK ON IT.
…Because that advertising could infect you in such a way that not just your system, but every device connected to your network would get affected.
A few days ago, we reported about a new exploit kit, dubbed Stegano, that hides malicious code in the pixels of banner advertisements rotating on several high profile news websites.
Now, researchers have discovered that attackers are targeting online users with an exploit kit called DNSChanger that is being distributed via advertisements that hide malicious code in image data.
Remember DNSChanger? Yes, the same malware that infected millions of computers across the world in 2012.
