the serving-up of low-integrity or outright malicious content through the integration of a popular advertising network such as DoubleClick or AdTech

DoubleClick is Google. Is Google punishing sites for having malware delivered by Google?

I don't care what stories you tell me about your attempts to towards cleanliness and chastefulness, I'm wearing a condom when we have sex, internet ad companies.

That's incredible news.

In the sense that Google and Doubleclick have zero credibility.

I remember when the great infection struck fark

I've had to occasionally turn on schmad schmlock on this site due to getting aids instead of ads. The
admins are very quick and ruthless about responding to complaints, though. So out of courtesy I'm
here without it much more often than not.

I kinda laughed at that part. Maybe google should vet their own systems a bit better.

That's step 1 and 2. Step 3 is probably "Google Malware Forgiveness - a $99/yr service"...

Your "GMF" is for site operators, I see now. Took a couple of read overs to see that.
Look forward to consumer sided "Google Guaranteed Safe," a service which will only send you the hand selected, most artisanal ads. I believe that Google will try to sell consumers ads.

I remember an Internet before ads. The glorious days of Angelfire, GeoCities, flying toaster gifs, and dancing babby. When Netscape Navigator 3.04 Gold was the benchmark against which all other browsers were measured. When HTML frames were the latest rage in web design, only to be supplanted 6 months later by HTML tables. When "dynamic content" was a perl script in the Apache /cgi-bin directory that delivered content like a hit counter. When a "Powered By Sun" jpeg was a badge of pride placed in the bottom right corner of every page.

Those were glorious days. Days that shant be seen again. It's dusty in here...

I just threw out my 20 year old books on web site design and server security. It was kind of sad to see them go, but I have no room for them.

Here is a thought for site admins that keep serving malware:

Fix your shiat.
Update your shiat
Stop serving shiat

Not that any of this matters. This time next year Net Neutrality will be done and gone thanks to our new fascist-corporatist regime, and the Internet will be a mishmash of pay sites that resemble a Comcast cable lineup. Oh, yeah, and they also want to outlaw porn, so that's half the Internet gone right there.

Have fun kids.

I was more upset on that day than I was when I realized Trump was actually going to be POTUS.

So... Less hijacking webpages, full screen ads, ads that trick you into clicking?

One can only hope.

Worse yet, there is rarely a quick fix. The problem is likely to have occurred in one of two categories - a direct SQL injection attack aimed through insecure forms or other weaknesses in your site's CMS; or the serving-up of low-integrity or outright malicious content through the integration of a popular advertising network such as DoubleClick or AdTech.

I have been having issues with Fark sporadically redirecting me to a fake Firefox update site which I think are related to the advertising network Fark uses. Just an FYI to the mods.

Whatever about that, this AMP shiat needs to stop, now.
