This malvertising group is called VeryMal after their domain name. It uses code that detects whether a person is using Windows or Apple when they click onto their advertisement.
If the code finds Apple fonts and images it will redirect the person to a fake Flash update.
What does this do?
After the ‘Flash’ update it will download additional malware or adware that causes pop-ups and infects your computer with viruses.
Make sure that you have an antivirus installed and it is up-to-date.
Check that your macOS is up-to-date
Don’t install Flash updates unless you are in your App Store.
Double check the websites that you are using. If something doesn’t look right, don’t use it!
