The holiday season represents some of the most significant sales opportunities of the year; it’s crucial for businesses to protect their revenue and stay vigilant against online scams and malicious advertising.
BALTIMORE – November 22, 2022 – (Newswire.com)
For many businesses, the fourth quarter represents the highest revenue potential for the year, with online shopping and ad spending at their peak. But with this opportunity comes some risk; online scams and malicious advertising also hit their highest point around this time, jeopardizing lucrative seasonal revenue. clean.io, a leading digital engagement security platform recently acquired by HUMAN security, is sharing its most valuable tips to prepare businesses for a busy fourth quarter and holiday season.
“Companies set their biggest revenue targets during the fourth quarter, and malvertising presents one of the most significant risks to meeting those goals,” said Geoff Stupay, CEO of clean.io. “For some of our clients, monthly losses were as high as 3%. But let’s not forget that malvertising also wreaks havoc on proper revenue attribution and data collection, leaving companies with an inaccurate representation about what went right and wrong during its most profitable quarter — it’s not a good way to start the new year.”
1. URL redirects are one of the most common attack vectors used by malicious advertisers. They occur when users click a compromised link on a trusted business’s website. This link reroutes visitors without their consent to an untrusted external site. Redirects are a strong indicator that malware is present and at work. While search engines have proprietary mechanisms for detecting redirects, it’s good practice for companies to have a protocol in place. Some of the most effective methods for that include:
- Using a web application firewall
- Keeping software updated as often as possible to prevent zero-day vulnerabilities
- Using an automated web scanner
- Purpose-built anti-malvertising tools like cleanAD
2. Public data shows that malvertising occurs at the highest rate on weekends and holidays, and as many as one out of every 100 ads may be vulnerable to malicious ads. Blocklisting removes known bad actors and potential threats and is an effective way to mitigate such threats. The National Security Agency issued guidance on blocking ad content to mitigate malvertising through network and host-based solutions, which include:
- Using DNS to block known ad domains
- Blocking ads at the host or endpoint level and
- Blocking ads through the use of browser extensions
3. As an e-commerce merchant, taking a proactive approach — going beyond to detect and eliminate instances of malvertising — is key to prevention. cleanAD makes malicious advertising unprofitable for bad actors by analyzing ad behavior in real time and targeting specific triggers associated with malicious activity. When cleanAD discovers such triggers, it prevents the malicious code from executing but allows ad auctions to complete and render on the page. As a result, the bad actor has paid for the ad but receives no engagement.
Malvertising, a portmanteau of the words malicious advertising, involves bad actors purchasing and submitting ads that appear normal but execute malicious activity on the publisher’s site. When clicked, those ads inject malware into a user’s device, which can obtain personal information or perform other nefarious activities through phishing or other means. It’s the business’s responsibility to provide a memorable user experience on its website, and malvertising can severely impact brand reputation.

Proceeds to Benefit Indianapolis-Based Village of Merici

INDIANAPOLIS – November 22, 2022 – (Newswire.com)
An act of friendship toward new teammates has turned into a full-fledged philanthropic endeavor for Cincinnati Bengals player Ted Karras. Fans and local media have quickly taken notice of Karras and other players wearing new “Cincy” hats in the locker room. Starting tonight at 7 p.m. EST, the hats are being made available to the public for the first time.
“The Cincy Hat” will be sold online, with the proceeds going to the Village of Merici in Indianapolis. The organization provides direct support services, learning opportunities, and independent living through partnerships with various developers. The Village of Merici currently supports more than 75 people throughout Indianapolis with a goal of self-reliance.
“The hats were originally a fun gift for my new teammates through a family friend’s golf supply business,” Karras says. “I figured everyone loves to get a piece of gear, and the response from my teammates, Bengal fans, and media members was extraordinary. The demand for the hats grew rapidly thanks to my teammates wearing them in interviews, and we decided to sell them, but it had to benefit Village of Merici.”
Karras’ involvement with Village of Merici is thanks to childhood friend Matt Renie. Karras and Renie were high school classmates at Cathedral High School in Indianapolis.
“Ted grew up as a family friend observing his friend’s brother who has intellectual and developmental disabilities,” says Colleen Renie, Executive Director of Village of Merici. “Ted also has a family member with autism. He saw the potential in individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their desire to live independently as they grew up.”
There are currently three hats available, with a fourth in the works. The hats retail for $35 each, and customers can choose from black, orange or white. The fourth hat will be white with a black logo.
The funds will go to supporting the Village of Merici programs that teach and support individuals in independent living skills to enable them to be successful.
“I am so grateful that a fun gift and project has found a special purpose,” Karras says. “It’s a great hat with an awesome design that I hope can become the unofficial hat of the Bengals. The Village of Merici is a very special place that does so much good. Any way I can ever help their cause is a special opportunity for me.”
To purchase a hat, visit thecincyhat.com. The website also offers a link for donations for Village of Merici. For more information regarding Village of Merici, visit villageofmerici.org or call Karyl Davis, Director of Development, at 317-601-0513.
