However, the one thing in common is that all these sites use JavaScript[1] ads that trigger redirects. The ads can come in a variety of forms, such as pop-ups, banners, in-text links, and similar.

Ways to avoid browser redirects and iPhone infections

As we already mentioned, the culprit that is related to suspicious activity lies within web scripts and malicious ads.

Malicious ads are a huge problem, and some site developers cannot cope with it properly due to the way JavaScript works, and sometimes checking each and every single ad that is being server would be almost impossible. Nevertheless, bad actors often choose to use ads as the main malware infiltration technique on torrent, porn, and similar sites.

The best solution would be installing the ad-blocking application and ensuring your device anti-malware software. Additionally, you should never download apps from suspicious domains you get redirected to.
