This site is pushing malware

Second time something on your page that I moused over has sent me here: https://zaixovinmonopolet.net/530...f868e.html

This is NOT a legitimate Firefox site -- it's almost certainly malware. Houston, we have a problem.

Yep, I have had been redirected to this same malware by Slickdeals multiple times in the last 1-2 weeks. Actually, I just came here to post the link SD redirected me to: https://zaixovinmonopolet.net/630...5f56e.html

It's malvertising - the ad network was compromised, and malicious advertisements were slipped into the ad stream.

Hi Adamc,

Thanks for reporting. One of the staff also experienced this. We've made sure to block this URL from serving on Slickdeals.

The problem is that there are thousands of ad buyers and apparently it's difficult for the ad platforms to proactively block every bad ad. We've invested in scanning technology, made sure to only work with a small number of the safest ad platforms, and regularly audit ads. We also blocked intrusive placements like in-banner video ads to keep the user experience good. In rare cases, bad ads may slip through, but they're usually shut down very quickly.

Thanks.
