Ad-emea.doubleclick.net is an advertising server used by a wide range of both reputable and disreputable businesses, with advertisement-related content including everything from Google's AdWords to harmful browser exploits. Because of the possible variation in experiences with Ad-emea.doubleclick.net, malware researchers recommend using intelligent browser security solutions for blocking any potentially unsafe advertisements from Ad-emea.doubleclick.net, which may infect your PC without any extensive interaction. Despite the risks of its advertisement network, Ad-emea.doubleclick.net is not an inherently toxic Web domain, and contact with Ad-emea.doubleclick.net advertisements endorsed by reputable sources can be considered perfectly safe.

Considering the Factors for Double-Clicking Ad-emea.doubleclick.net Off Your Browser

Ad-emea.doubleclick.net is one of multiple sub-domains for the Doubleclick.net advertising network. Although a high majority of Ad-emea.doubleclick.net's advertisements have been rated as safe for your PC, malware experts also sometimes may see Ad-emea.doubleclick.net's security compromised. Small numbers of PC threats have been able to exploit Ad-emea.doubleclick.net advertisements to deliver themselves to unsuspecting viewers, using several strategies of attack.

Since a successful attack through Ad-emea.doubleclick.net has the potential to install damaging software automatically without any accompanying symptoms for the attack, victims without suitable security solutions are at a disadvantage even for determining when their PC has been compromised – as malware researchers sometimes may note in similar cases.

Keeping Your Advertising Channels Clean of Malicious Debris

Although some PC users may opt for blocking all kinds of advertisements for their browser without any discrimination, most anti-malware products should be able to identify and block the kinds of exploits that are used in compromised Ad-emea.doubleclick.net advertisements. Disabling especially exploitable features like Flash and JavaScript also is recommended for the overall safety of your computer, except in cases where doing so prevents a website from displaying critical content. Malware experts also see many similar attacks using outdated exploits, which are some of the most easily blocked attacks – since all you need to do is update your software to eliminate the vulnerabilities being abused.

Some PC users also have reported incidents involving Ad-emea.doubleclick.net pop-ups or other adware attacks. Specialized security software always should be used for uninstalling browser hijackers, adware and other low-level PC threats that are likely to produce these symptoms. If left untended, these symptoms may remain a security hazard and potential source of exposure to drive-by-downloads, scamware and phishing attacks. Infection vectors for these PC threats still are unidentified, although malware researchers suspect the use of software bundles in poorly-maintained freeware sites for major distribution methods.
