25 July 2018. AdSecure, the ad verification tool used by ad networks, ad operations teams and publishers, today announced that it has added the detection of the auto-redirect to it’s arsenal. The auto-redirect is considered to be an annoying format and is also widely used by cybercriminals for distributing malicious advertising.
This intrusive technique affects desktop, mobile and tablet. Mobiles are particularly affected by auto-redirects on both Android and iOS.
AdSecure’s Product Manager Mat Derval commented, “These malicious auto-redirect ads used to only affect junk websites, but recently auto-redirects have been placed on reputable websites including The New York Times amongst others. AdSecure’s team and our technology has enabled us to quickly develop and get to market the software needed to detect this malicious ad format. Ad platforms and publishers that use AdSecure’s all in one malware detection package benefit from keeping their users safe from being exposed to malicious ad formats.”
