    'Google, AOL, Rubicon, and AppNexus are the four advertising platforms through which the malicious ads were delivered.'
    'The malicious ads have been displayed on some of the biggest sites that include Microsoft's MSN portal, the New York Times, the BBC, AOL, Comcast's Xfinity, NFL, Realtor, the Weather Network, The Hill, and Newsweek.'

    I run a modified .hosts file, and or uBlock.
    If a site has a problem with that, they can block their content and I’ll just not go.

    Sadly that’s why I stopped going to Wired now.
    I even tried whitelisting them, but I kept getting blocked out of the content.
