Malicious advertisements distributed by DoubleClick, Zedo networks

2014/09/18

IDG News Service - (International) Researchers at Malwarebytes found that the DoubleClick and Zedo advertisement networks have been delivering malicious ads to several popular Web sites including Last.fm, The Times of Israel, and The Jerusalem Post. The malicious ads redirect users to a page hosting the Nuclear exploit kit which then attempts to drop the Zemot malware used by attackers to download additional malicious components.
