The Media Trust & ExchangeWire Release Global Malware Study

Today ExchangeWire released the first global study of the perceptions of malware and malvertising in the digital advertising ecosystem. The research and accompanying report were created in partnership with The Media Trust, the world’s leading media verification, malware protection, and advertising quality assurance platform.

The results will be revealed and discussed later today at an event in London later today.

From the Forward:

The digital advertising ecosystem is in a state of crisis, with many questioning its security. Each week bears witness to another media story regarding malware-laden ads infecting devices to cause harm to consumers. The presence of malware in the digital environment is no longer a topic relegated to advertising professionals – it’s become a mainstream and global issue.

Each year the number of ad-delivered malware infections increases, with The Media Trust detecting a year-over-year doubling in growth for the past several years. Clearly, malware is not new, which presents an interesting question: What do digital advertising professionals think about malware?

This study provides insight into the opinions of agencies, ad tech providers and publishers across several of the world’s largest publishing markets. In general, most are aware of the malvertising risks in their environments and almost everyone agrees it’s on the rise. However, there are some surprising results, and several opinions do not correlate with industry data:

• 50%+ believe malware is less of a problem on mobile

• US and UK publishers feel malware is a bigger issue for ecommerce than publisher/media websites

• Industry professionals believe 72% of malware exists on non-premium sites

• 20% of publishers believe their websites’ are safe from the constant threat of malware

    • Vodafone’s marketing boss makes her mark with rebrand ditching Martin Freeman
      In the first marketing campaign under a new brand and marketing director, Vodafone has ditched longtime frontman Martin Freeman in favour of an approach that has some “longevity” amid the roll-out of 5G data services.  The latest work – created by Ogilvy – has sought to draw a line under a two-year marketing strategy that “addressed problems” Vodafone could fix. Instead, brand chief Maria Koutsoudakis said the fresh approach is the foundation of a two-year plan to be more “positive” and “energising” in its communications.  Koutsoudakis joined the telco as brand and marketing director in December in what was an unusual ... read more

    • Could a circular economy mindset help to revive trust in brands?
      There is a decline in the trust of brands and advertising. 89% of millennials trust recommendations from friends and family more than claims by brands. Earlier this year the Advertising Association launched a report called ‘Arresting The Decline Of Public Trust In UK Advertising.’ Even the president of the association himself said that it is trust or bust for the ad industry.’ Without trust, we lose the influence and power to change behaviour for the better. We, as creatives and storytellers, possess the power of influence to make people feel something, so much so, that they might change their behaviour ... read more
