Staying safe online requires more than just avoiding web-sites that look untrustworthy. These days, you might be redirected and/or infected with malware by the advertisement banner showing on a legitimate webpage. To counter this kind of threat, we at Malwarebytes tend to block entire advertiser networks in an effort to prevent our users from being a victim of malicious advertisements or malvertising. The purpose of this blog post is to explain exactly why you might see pop-ups from our Website Blocking function on a site that you thought you trusted.
