    Bizarre article really.

    I remember malvertising as far back as 2007, and it's one of the easiest vectors to close given how readily available adblocking tools are these days. Poorly researched article, and mostly just a soapbox for the guy from RiskIQ.

    Posted a similar comment on the article page, but won't be surprised if it doesn't get past their moderation.
