    If you are still getting chinese ads and pop-ups (aka “malvertising”), check your router’s firmware.

    A security researcher recently documented a hack that was running on unpatched consumer routers, which would hijack DNS settings, redirecting users to fake versions of real sites, and/or inject code into pages that would generate millions in fake advertising.
