What is Malvertising?

We have now entered an age where you can lose your files, photos, and music simply by visiting a reputable website.

Earlier this year, the Huffington Post unwittingly served up a malicious Hugo Boss advert to its visitors. The ad infected visitors' machines with the Cryptowall ransomware, which encrypted the users' files and extorted money from them to get their files back. The scary part? The user didn't have to click on anything to become infected. Since then, more occurrences of Malvertising have been reported.

What is going on, and how can you protect yourself?
