Preventing Open Redirect Banner Tag Malware Exploit


Recommended Posts

This article details how a hacker named Tag Barnakle has compromised dozens of Revive adservers by exploiting open redirects to compromise banner tags into sending users to malware pages:


When the adserver is compromised, banner tags may be blocked by Google Ad Manager, preventing publishers from delivering banners to that tag.

Has a fix been made to prevent this problem from infecting a Revive install?
