We check for infectious ads
Often times the source of infectious code on a website, isn't on the website at all.
Website owners like to monetize their website traffic by running ads on their website. These ads will generate some income and help pay for hosting fees and other basic costs - ads might be a large part of your business model.
Cybercriminals know this. They run ads with infectious code in them on some of the popular ad networks. Imagine how many websites you visit in a typical day that have some type of ads on them. Now imagine if those ads were delivering malicious code.
Infectious ads have proven to be one of the more difficult challenges for website owners found by Google to be infectious or 'suspicious' as Google labels them.
Because we check all files on a website, even the ones hosted elsewhere, like ads, we find all infectious ads and report them to you - if you're our client. That gives you the information you need to know if you want to continue with that ad network or not. Many people will stay with the ad network, just notify them of the infectious ad. The choice would be yours - if you were a client of We Watch Your Website.
Rarely will other services check any file outside the specified website. If your site were listed by Google as suspicious because of an infectious ad, you'd want to know - wouldn't you?
