Twin Cities PC Repair, based in Eagan, Minnesota, has announced that they have recently published a blog post that discusses the advantages of using an ad blocker. The article is titled, “The Advantages of Ad Blocking,” and points out that it is usually highly recommended for people to try to avoid ads unless they are in the advertising industry. It is explained that online ads are not just annoying but they can also be a security risk. This is because cyber criminals may also buy legitimate ad space in their effort to lure users to visit malicious sites. The result is that websites that people are familiar with and trust that use legitimate ad networks may serve up the malicious ads.

Patrick Jensen, owner of Twin Cities PC Repair, says, “We suggest that people make use of ad blocking tools to avoid security risks. Adware is another security risk that people may be exposed to if they don’t use an ad blocker. Adware is often packaged with legitimate software and the adware then runs on the computer without the user being aware of it. It will then display unwanted ads and redirect search requests to ad websites, and it may also mine the user’s personal data.”

Patrick Jensen recommends that people keep their software up-to-date, run antivirus checks, and protect themselves from malicious downloads and malware. It may also help to avoid Java and Flash because these are often used by malvertisers. Cyber criminals often target Windows users because of the large user base, although Macs may also be subjected to malvertising attacks.
