Arrow Right Wikipedia: If you see ads, you're infected!

Wikipedia: If you see ads, you're infected!
Written by James Delahunty @ 17 May 2012

Wikipedia does not display ads at all.

The Wikimedia Foundation is warning users that if they see ads on the mega-popular encyclopedia, then the ads are likely being provided by malicious software.
Wikipedia is funded by over one million donors, most of whom give $30 or less a year, and it does not show advertisements, ever.

It was responding to growing numbers of reports that ads have been showing up on pages throughout Wikipedia.
It named one culprit as a Google Chrome extension called "I want this".
You can easily remove the extension in Chrome through Settings.

It has suggested the use of HTTPS Everywhere to ensure that all connections to Wikipedia are made through HTTPS, which will kill off some of the advertisements that users are seeing.
Still, simply using HTTPS Everywhere will not fix the underlying problem, and so Wikimedia is suggesting that users install anti-malware solutions on their systems.

In some cases, ads might not be malicious, but might be placed on all pages if you are using public Wi-Fi or are at an Internet cafe that subsidizes its earnings through the use of ads that show up on all websites.

Default Re: Wikipedia: If you see ads, you're infected!

I never see ads on the internet (thank you adblock plus). It's as much about security as it is about getting rid of annoyances. Every so often, Google's iFrames get infected with malware. Only way to prevent getting infected is to prevent the display of ads and preventing scripting from running by default. I've already been where folks got infected seeing ads and walk away without the same problems.

I still don't have a clue why some users don't have something in the line of defenses setup to prevent such infections from happening. I guess it will take a younger generation a bit more computer savvy to bring to the forefront that security is an issue.

Thank you for this information, online 24. I had no idea that some other malware is running rampant in the computer user world.
