What is ad injection?

Ad injection is the process of injecting unauthorized ads into a website where the entity injecting them has no business relationship. For example, a malicious actor could target a shoe reseller by injecting competitive ads which display cheaper prices or even alternate models. Another malicious approach could involve an advertisement directing a user to an unknown, sinister website, where they would automatically and unknowingly download adware onto their device or input payment details which end up in the wrong hands to be sold on the dark web for profit. 

Injecting ads into web pages can be achieved through various ways, such as utilizing rogue browser plugins and extensions, and tricking users into installing them. Websites can also have ad injection code directly inserted through an infrastructure breach, a site vulnerability such as cross-site scripting (XSS) or by tampering with one of the third-party libraries used within the web pages. 

For organizations that generate revenue from displaying ads, the effects of injection go beyond simple competitive content to actually stealing revenue. Some ad injection-based attacks will actively replace legitimate ads with ones that generate revenue for the attackers instead. While organizations invest resources into preventing ad blockers, they often overlook that the very same techniques can be used to inject alternate ads too. 

This is a problem which often goes unnoticed by website owners – and with your website visitors potentially being directed to other end destinations out of your control, your online revenue will ultimately suffer.

Protect and increase online revenue

By the end of 2020, ecommerce sales are expected to account for 15.5 percent of all retail sales worldwide, with 85 percent of consumers conducting online research before making a purchase online. These statistics highlight the importance of your website and ensuring that online visitors have a seamless experience. 

A challenge which many ecommerce websites are facing is ad injection, which is said to cost businesses between two to five percent in annual revenue. This issue is not only impacting online revenue, but also your online visitors’ journey and opinion of your brand.

With these advertisements being injected on the client side, traditional server-side security solutions lack visibility and control over this growing problem.

Our ad injection prevention solution shows you which unauthorized ads and third parties are running on your website and blocks malicious advertising. This will stop your customers from being diverted to other websites, thus ensuring your visitors stay with you to transact.
