DDoS Attacks - A new twist in Malvertisements

Original Source: http://stopmalvertising.com/malvertisements/ddos-attacks-a-new-twist-in-malvertisements.html
Today Stop Malvertising has experienced the next evolution in the world of malvertisements: Malicious crafted Flash advertisements designed to perform mini DDoS attacks on websites.
During the past 24 hours, Stop Malvertising has been the victim of an attack launched via malicious advertising.
Please treat all content from the following domains with extreme caution:
  • data-ero-advertising.com: Registered on April 28th 2011 via EURODNS S.A by Interwebvertising BV - Huibers Jan
  • flatfee.ero-advertising.com: Registered on December 20th 2005 (updated May 10th 2010) via ENOM, INC. by Interwebvertising BV - J Huibers
  • www.ero-advertising.com: Regsitered on December 20th 2005 (updated May 10th 2010) via ENOM, INC. by Interwebvertising BV - J Huibers
By accepting their advertisements you might end up participating in activities you don’t want your company to be held responsible for.
As seen in the network capture, the malicious Flash banner hosted at data-ero-advertising.com is requesting a particular URL on Stop Malvertising which I will not reveal for the time being.
