Malware is getting more malicious, with a new round of bogus advertisements attempting to defraud or infect hitting well-known web sites like the New York Times.
Avast recognized the new threat from the beginning, according to the NYTimes “Gadgetwise” blog. Bogus ads on the NYTimes were flagged by avast running on the journalist’s own computer.
The newest attacks show how the battleground for computer security has shifted from email to the internet, with around 80 percent of all new infections now originating via the internet.
