Malevolent advertising is called malvertising. The “ad” is placed on a website by cybercriminals who want control of your computer for financial gain.



And the real scary thing about malvertising is that these trick-ads have appeared on trusted, popular websites like the Weather Network, BBC, NFL and the New York Times.

Oh, and it gets worse: The malicious ad can be hidden, unseen by the site visitor, thanks to a special html code that allows the bad ad to be inside legitimate content. This trick-code is usually hidden in what are called iframes—without affecting the rest of the site appearance.

The type of cybercriminal who succeeds at this needs to be patient and clever.

Legitimate advertisers place their ads with ad networks, bidding for ad placement.
Ad networks, which handle the bidding, serve the ads to websites.
Crooks may place legitimate ads with these networks to gain a good reputation, or, crooks run networks.
After building trust with placement of legit ads, the crooks graduate to ad placement on high traffic sites, and then they put in their malicious code in the iframes: malvertisements.
When you’re on one of these infected pages, the ad will release malware to your computer that can do a whole host of damage.
What to do?

Keep all your software and systems up to date.
Install an ad blocker, but be judicious, because ad blockers can disrupt the presentation of some sites, e.g., blocking some content, not just the ads. You may not mind this inconvenience, but also realize that an ad blocker will not block every malvertisement, either.
Install antivirus software or an anti-exploit kit that will snuff out exploit kits, a favorite tool of the malvertiser.
Exploit kits prowl your computer for vulnerabilities, and the right software will detect and neutralize them.
Uninstall browser plugins you have no use for, especially if they’re the vulnerable Adobe Flash and Java.
Set the remaining plugins to click to play, which will give you the option to run a plugin when a site you’re visiting wants to load one.

Cane



If you use a cane, take “cane-fu” classes if possible. Yes, it’s a thing.
A sturdy cane with a strong handle works best.
Do not assume you can fight with a cane just because you need one to walk.
Avoid a cane with a hidden knife or sword unless you specifically train to fight with a blade.
A person’s first instinct with a cane-like device for self-defense is to wield it in a horizontal path as though swinging a baseball bat. This is wrong, as it can easily be seen in progress by the person you’re trying to ward off; that person could dodge it, deflect it or grab the cane from you. This is why a cane self-defense class is crucial.
Magazine

Swatting someone with an unrolled magazine is worthless, even the most tightly rolled magazine won’t stop an assailant—because swatting is the wrong way to use a rolled-up magazine as a weapon.
The proper way to strike is with a hammer motion, your arm as the handle and the magazine as the head, so that the end of the roll is struck into the assailant; the roll, ideally, is perpendicular to the surface it strikes, concentrating as much impact as possible into a small area. But if this small area is his neck, nose, temple or groin, it will stop him long enough for you to either follow up with another blow or to escape.
A pre-rolled magazine, fastened tightly with several thick rubber bands, is something you should have on hand, just in case. Otherwise, pray you don’t let panic make you fumble as you’re trying to roll up a magazine when an assailant approaches.
Flashlight

A flashlight, being shaped like a rolled-up magazine, is used in the same way as a magazine roll.
But because it’s more solid, it will be more effective.
Pen

You’re probably already picturing a pen sticking out of the assailant’s eye.
A pen jabbed into the temple, nose and neck hard enough will disable the attacker; the more perpendicular the pen to the strike surface, the better.
A pen jammed hard enough into the collarbone will also stop the assailant.
Other body parts worth mentioning: ear, cheek, top of hand, groin.
Belt

The key is being able to quickly pull the belt off your pants.
And that’s it: whip at him with the buckle as the striking end. Don’t try to strangle him; that only works in the movies, then run!
