Virus and Trojan Distribution through Avertising Networks
Server farms hosting advertising content are periodically infected by hackers who alter the behavior of these servers such that the content they serve to end-users includes hidden I-frames and other exploits that leverage vulnerabilities in various web-browsers and operating systems for the purpose of infecting those systems with malware. End users frequently confuse the source of their computer infection with a particular web-site they were viewing at the time, and not the advertising network that was linked to by the website (most users don't understand or appreciate the distinction).
