Benjamin Mayo, on a rash of web ads that are redirecting people to App Store links:
This is Apple’s problem to fix, not an attack on the websites
shown. All of these websites use third-party networks that are
outside of their control — it’s not their decision to cause the
redirections. We’ve reached out to Apple for comment on the issue.
Update 2: Here’s a piece from last week from AraLabs explaining how this hijack works.
Update 3: Jason Snell, “Ad Networks, Redirects, and Assumptions”.
