Over the past few months, there have been multiple malvertising campaigns.The primary objective of these campaigns is to infect Internet users with ransomware and other malware. Cisco’s Talos Group successfully shut down one of these campaigns, which was relying on the Neutrino Exploit Kit. A significant success for security researchers, albeit the war is far from over.

"Cisco’s security experts managed to bring down the campaign, by collaborating with Godaddy. As it turns out, the server hosting the exploit kit was located in Russia. Internet users who were trying to access legitimate websites would be redirected to this server. In the background, the exploit kit would look for weaknesses on the computer to install different types of ransomware."
