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

- One year in, NBCUniversal’s cross-platform measurement framework CFlight shows promiseTV networks and agency ad buyers are largely in agreement that someone watching a live broadcast of “This Is Us” on NBC’s linear network should be considered to be just as valuable as someone else streaming that episode a couple weeks later on Hulu. But actually being able to measure TV networks’ linear and digital viewership on a like-for-like basis is much less straightforward than that. True cross-platform measurement has eluded advertisers for about as long as there have been multiple platforms for campaigns to run across.

Not all direct-to-consumer brands are snubbing Amazon. Bark, a dog supplies brand, has embraced it instead.

To reach more people, the brand wanted to go where more customers were. It started selling exclusively in Target in 2017, an exclusivity agreement that would end after one year. ... read more6 hours ago
- How Dennis Publishing’s affiliate business boosts its ads performanceFor most publishers, diversifying revenue streams away from volatile advertising into e-commerce and affiliate has become the norm. Dennis Publishing has now found its affiliate and ad businesses actually complement each other. As the former has grown its ad performance, it’s led to more clients rebooking campaigns. Across the magazine publisher’s portfolio, which includes titles like The Week and Men’s Fitness, affiliate revenue grew 72% in 2018. On Dennis’ main product-review site, Expert Reviews, affiliate revenue grew 83% during the same year and now accounts for 70% of the title’s revenue, up from virtually nothing three years ago, according to the ... read more6 hours ago
- Inside Axel Springer’s war with AdBlock PlusIn Germany, the war between premium publishers and ad-blocker company Eyeo continues to rage. Axel Springer remains undeterred by a string of court-case losses against AdBlockPlus owner Eyeo over the last four years. Rather, the digital media giant is once again suing the firm — this time on the grounds of copyright infringement. Publisher hand-wringing over the state of ad blocking across Europe has lessened since 2016 when it first reached crisis levels. But the loss in revenue it causes is still enough to spur publishers, in Germany at least, to continue the fight. Axel Springer’s issue remains ... read more6 hours ago
