(Update: Politifact has liquidated the code and is looking into how it got there.)
I’ve contacted the webpagina’s team to ask what the story is, someone there told The Register that they’re looking into it, but I’ll update if I hear back with more details.
What can you do? Well, this is a fine reason to install an ad blocker, if you toevluchthaven’t already: ter addition to getting rid of intrusive ads and trackers, some of them block unknown scripts or have a blacklist of known malicious ones. I use uBlock Origin, which also makes it effortless to whitelist sites (like this one) that only feature organic, free-range advertisements. But you could also use NoScript, AdBlock or any one of the many out there, depending on your toneelpodium and browser.
