BSides Manchester: Malvertising - under the hood

BSides Manchester: Malvertising – under the hood

I’ve talked about malvertising a fair bit at security events down the years and I was lucky enough to be able to add to the tally at this month’s BSides Manchester conference. Whether your preferred variety is desktop, mobile, or even virtual/augmented reality, there’s hopefully something here for everyone.

“Malvertising: under the hood” covers the following topics:

  • Malvertising definition
  • Publisher/advertiser numbers
  • From old ads to new
  • Fake advertisers and domain shadowing
  • Domain imitation
  • Cloned ads
  • Malvertising gateways
  • Bad ad excuses
  • Ad blocking wars
  • Mobile antics
  • VR / AR
