What is a ‘drive-by download’?

This is when a file is downloaded from a browser without the user knowing or asking for it.  It could be done with malvertising or just a malicious script on a website that you visited accidentally.

What this means to you:

When this feature is implemented it could mean less malvertising and fewer ‘bad’ websites to land on.

What to do until the feature becomes active:

Always be sure that you are on the site you want to be on.

Don’t run JavaScript on any site.

And be careful of the links that you click on.
