Threat: Users targeted with malware in advertising
Specifically in this threat the website Forbes asked users to disable ad blockers but the ads served were found to contain malware. This particular instance is worse in my opinion than some as the website owners asked users to disable what is quickly becoming a popular security option and then preceded to serve users malware. While I like to support websites, it makes it difficult to do so when ad networks are not better vetted.
