@Malwarebytes: If you aren't using an ad bloc...


If you aren't using an ad blocker then you may see malicious search ads that impersonate legitimate sites, like this one for CNN.

This ad appears to link to the official CNN website, but "The CNN News" sounds pretty sus.

Wonder what happens if we click it...



Ope, it's malware.

Ad blockers aren't just for convenience and a better web experience, but are ESSENTIAL for security, both for corporate and home users.

Attempting to access the site with Browser Guard installed results in the content being blocked.


Malicious ads like this scam users every day with wallet drainers, tech support scams, malicious downloads impersonating legitimate tools, and more.

Don't feel guilty about using an ad blocker. Your safety is at risk without one.
