Ads that replace the page with a new page?[edit]

Is there a name for malicious ads which get listed in general advertising networks (doubleclick, etc), but which cause the content you wanted to see, to be replaced by a new page with an full-page ad that completely replaces the previous page? Upon going back a page to where you wanted to be, the malicious ad that triggered going to the new page has disappeared without a trace, and it is replaced by a completely different ad from the advertising network.

This is commonly used to display the "you need to download a fake Java/Flash update" malware pages. -- DMahalko (talk) 00:09, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Malvertisement[edit]

Both Malvertising and Malvertisement are about the same subject. But "Malvertising" gets more views — so we should name the final merged page "Malvertising". —Unforgettableid (talk) 05:08, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

Support They're the same concept. --QuicksilverJohny (talk) 17:56, 9 April 2016 (UTC)
Support Different conjugations of the same word typically do not need separate articles. Jesin (talk) 23:42, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
