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

    • The Drum Show: making the case for a little less 'left brain'
      The Drum has unveiled this week's episode of its online video series The Drum Show, which looks at the big talking points in media and marketing from the past seven days. The latest episode is hosted by The Drum's senior reporter Rebecca Stewart, who was joined by Habito’s chief marketing officer Abba Newbery and System1 Research’s chief innovation officer Orlando Wood.

    • Creativity’s demise is much exaggerated as tech gives it a new lease of life
      Hamburg. A city of contradiction. On one hand, it’s true to the Germanic tradition of science-based order. But on the other, it’s home to a gritty counter-culture that has inspired generations of artists - including The Beatles. What better place to convene a session of the Accenture Creative Council to consider how the marketing industry is being transformed by a similar alchemy. Yes, science-based skills seem all the rage in our industry. But rather than supplanting those with a right-brain bent, are the scientists in reality augmenting traditional creativity? Our Creative Council guests were in Hamburg as part of the ... read more

    • Flip the script: what happens to production when clients slash agency budgets?
      Amid wider industry trends directors and production staff have, for years now, watched on helplessly as their budgets have all but disappeared. Clients under ever-increasing pressure from shareholders and a C-suite that's afforded mere months rather than years to whip bloated brands into shape continue to sacrifice legacy-building for fast content: more of it, for less money, and with their own mucky mitts all over it. Meanwhile, agencies continue to wedge themselves in the middle lest they be forced out of the process completely; some even training their creatives in the art of direction and offering production as a mere ... read more
