WARNING: Ads Falsely Reporting Celebrity Deaths May Be Dangerous Malware, DO NOT CLICK



Both celebrities are quite alive.  I checked.  I also ran the target URLs through Jsunpack, and both were declared "suspicious."  I would heartily agree.  At least to my only-slightly-better-than-untrained eyes, the files to which they are linked are highly suspicious, so much so that I didn't run them even quarantined, since the sandbox is of my own devising.

You can look at the code yourself at the links below.  Leave a comment if you come to any conclusions, or even educated guesses.

The "Bill O'Reilly is Dead" ad (adurl=https:/energyvigorouspro.com/2017/07/27/increase-the-weight-with-these-fruits/) appears to at the very least be adding some item to some cart; the "Rush Limbaugh is Dead" ad (url currentmasswave.com) appears to at the very least be attempting to add comments somewhere.

Thought you'd like to know.  We may or may not be on the same "side" of the arbitrary fence, but we are all netizens, and some of us need to stop devising this garbage and get meaningful lives.

Be seeing you.
